Page 6 Golden Valley News March 21, 2013 on hi Week y ion continues The words in HeR 3047 are few but clear and the resolution has' emerged as the "handwriting on the wall" wRh no additional attempt necessary to read between the lines: The governance model of North. Dakota's University System has a good chance of being executed with "'the body" being resurrected with stronger legislative controls Administration of the state's higher education system has been under assault diaring the 63rd Leg- islative Assembly, which, appegred to believe something has to be done to "stop the bleeding." Months of talk about changes re- suited in three resolutions being heard, designed to put aside the model of a relatively independent" and powerful board, and justified by a belief that the board has not been doing a collectively accept- able job. The three proposed reso- lutions were HeR 3047, HCR 3042 and SCR 4028. The first wave of complaints concerned a sometimes hands-off chancellor and individual campus presidents seeking unchecked cam- pus control. Those and other con- cerns, including an international program and degree scandal, tu- ition-increase maneuvering and non-effective financial safeguards were considered painful and self- inflicted wounds The board's answer was to hire a "tough" new chancellor to resolve perceived and real concerns. The new leader, on the job less than, a year now, was chav.acCerized as a strong CEO who would be an ef- fective change agent. But he and the board now face more criticism from many in the legislature as well as some board members and institution presidents'- regarding the chancellor's governance actions and possibly violations of open- meeting laws., HeR 3047 has emerged as the leading substitute of a governance model. It received a 7-6 "'do pass" vote in committee. HeR 3042 was given a 9-4 "do not pass" recom- mendation in committee and SCR .4028 didn't receive a recommenda- tion in committee and was killed on the floor by a 13-34 vote. If HeR 3047 becomes law the constitutional authorities for system governance will be replaced by a Department of Higher Education, effective July 1,2015. The gover- nor will appoint the department di- rector (rather than a chancellor being selected by a board). The di- recto[ will be responsible for man- agement and operation of the system, within limitations to b.e de- termined. The director will also hire/fire institutional president's that will report to her/him. Processes re- main a bit muddied, but if the reso- lution passes it will be sent to voters in the 2014 general election. If approved by the electorate, the 64th Legislative Assembly will then have only a few months to work out the, details of which there are many. HeR 3042 would remove cur- rent constitutional language and seeks a generol election for a higher Legislative Review By John R. I rby The first wave of complaints con- cerned a sometimes hands-off chancel- lor ,and individual campus presidents seeking unchecked campus control would have consisted of the gover- nr (or a designee) as chairman; the superintendent of public instruc- tion; the agriculture commissioner; two governor appointees; three ap- pointees by the House majority leader; and three appointees by the Senate majority leader The council would have a]bpointed a chancellor as system chief executive officer and he/she would have appointed and removed (if necessary) system presidents. House Majority Leader A1 Carl- son, R-41; Fargo, introduced HeR 3047 in ,a joint-committee meeting. A vocal critic of higher-education system administration, Carlson said the resolution was not about retali- ation for "some of the things that have heen in the news," but about better governance. He and others have displayed frustration by con- tentiously referencing the board as "the fourth branch of government." "They believe the legislature does not have the authority to ad- dress anything (in higher educa- tion) except the funding," Carlson said. He said that premise was de- batable and added: "The legislature has the one important thing they (the board) need - and that's the money," Carlson justified a change, in part, by saying some presidents are in fear for their jobs because they have been told (by the chancellor) that they are "not qualified or in- subordinate." He said presidents have been told they are not sup- posed to speak at board meetings unless they are asked to speak. While the chancellor has re- cently received two group votes of "no confidence," Laura Glatt, vice chancellor for the system, repre- sented the board with testimony in opposition to the bill: "The board ... was established by constitu- tional mandate in 1938 as a result of then Go,v.
