Second Minnesota State Chancellor Search Begins

ST. PAUL, MN, September 20, 2017 — After one failed search, Minnesota State is once again looking for its next chancellor.

The system of 30 community and technical colleges and seven universities is looking for its next leader, according to a news release, after Steven Rosenstone, who served as chancellor from 2011 to 2017, announced his retirement in April 2016.

The national search brought forward three possible candidates, all of which were rejected by the Board of Trustees in February. That resulted in the interim appointment of Devinder Malhotra, who held leadership positions at Metropolitan State University as the interim president from 2014 to 2016, and a St. Cloud State University as provost and vice president for academic affairs.
