SCSU's Vice President of Finance To Depart Earlier Than Expected

The Vice President for Finance and Administration at St. Cloud State University is leaving her post much earlier than expected.

Interim president Ashish Vaidya informed the campus that Tammy McGee will be departing the school on January 5.

The president says he was recently informed she is pursuing other professional opportunities.

Vaidya has made an organizational change that is effective immediately. The Finance and Administration department is now reporting directly to the president's office. He also announced a national search will begin right away for McGee's replacement and Vice President for Student Life and Development Wanda Overland will chair that search.

Just last week Vaidya accepted a new job as President of Northern Kentucky University. He will remain at SCSU through June 2018.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation says trees will be removed to improve sightlines and remove debris from the nine-mile stretch of highway.

The project began this week on Tuesday and will be finished in December.

President of St. Cloud State University To Leave Post July 1

St. Cloud State University's Interim President announced to faculty, staff and students Thursday morning he will be leaving the institution after the end of the current school year.

Ashish Vaidya says in his message it is with mixed feelings that he will become the President of Northern Kentucky University effective July 1. Vaidya stepped into the interim presidency role after the sudden death of Earl Potter in a car crash in June of 2016. He had been the university's provost prior to that tragedy.

Vaidya has been at SCSU for about two and a half years. He calls it one of the most professionally rewarding experiences of his career. As the university works through the transition to naming a new president Vaidya says he's committed to playing an active role with the new leader.

Minnesota State's Interim Chancellor Devinder Malhotra says they are beginning a national search immediately. They are working with a professional firm, AGB Search, and the Chancellor will name a search chair by the end of the week. He says it's his intention to kick off the search prior to the Thanksgiving holiday.

Northern Kentucky University announced Vaidya's presidency online here.
