The Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) Board of Trustees decided today to postpone until June the appointment of presidents for seven member colleges and universities.

MnSCU has conducted nationwide searches to fill presidencies at Anoka-Hennepin Technical College in Anoka, Lake Superior College in Duluth, North Hennepin Community College in Brooklyn Park, Red-Wing/Winona Technical, Rochester Community and Technical College, Southwest State University in Marshall and St. Cloud Technical College.

MnSCU Chancellor Judith Eaton was scheduled to make recommendations today on the appointments. These recommendations and board action will now occur at the June 18 board meeting. Board members said they needed more time to consider the appointments.
