The North Dakota State Board of Higher Education unanimously selected Kelley after interviewing him Monday, Feb. 4, at the UND Memorial Union River Valley Room. If he accepts the position, Kelley will succeed Charles Kupchella, who was named UND's 10th president on April 20, 1999 and who announced his retirement in January 2007. Kelley was recommended by the UND Presidential Search Committee.
