St. Cloud State University will extend the search for the positions of Dean of the Herberger Business School and Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.
The University went through an RFP process to find a firm to help with finding candidates for both positions by July. SCSU President Earl H. Potter III says after reviewing the search firm proposals and listening to feedback from campus colleagues, more time is needed to find a firm that fits the desired search process.
President Potter adds that the University will move forward in finding a search firm for both searches, but with the intent of making appointments by January.
Both positions opened up this January when Diana Lawson, current Dean of the Herberger Business School accepted the position as Dean of the Seidman College of Business at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan and Miguel Martinez-Saenz, current Dean of University College and Associate Provost for Student Success, accepted the position as the new Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs of Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio for the next Fall academic term.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Minnesota’s 6th congressional district Representative Michele Bachmann is renewing her fundraising solicitations, even though she doesn't plan to run for re-election.
The former Republican presidential candidate is once again sending email fundraising requests after her political action committee essentially sat dormant for a year. Her PAC raised about $250,000 in 2013, with about a third spent on legal bills.
Aside from MichelePAC, Bachmann ended 2013 with more than $1.7 million in her congressional campaign account. She can hold on to that campaign money and use it for a possible future campaign.
Washington University political science professor Steven Smith tells Minnesota Public Radio that Bachmann may have resumed her PAC solicitations because negative news over allegations of campaign finance violations related to her 2012 presidential campaign has faded.
