The general Brigade named as President of North Dakota

A former general and late brigade will retire at the Air Force Academy as the next president of the University of North Dakota, the Higher State Board announced on Tuesday.

Andrew Armacost attended an active duty more than 30 years and spent 20 years as a professor and executive in the Air Force Academy, including stints as faculty dean and chief academic officer.

Armacost is the 13th president of the university, all men are. It replaces Mark Kennedy, a former Minnesota colleague who was named president earlier this year at the University of Colorado.

Laurie Stenberg Nichols, former president of the University of Wyoming and the first woman nominated to that position, and David Rosowsky, a long-standing professor of civil and post-prison engineering at the University of Vermont. The board held final interviews with the three candidates on Tuesday morning.

The University of North Dakota is the oldest and largest university and one of the two research institutes in the state, along with North Dakota State University. UND is located in liberal arts, with medical and legal schools as well as a highly regarded aerospace sciences program, which has focused heavily on developing unmanned systems. The university's enrollment for the 2019 fall semester was 13,581, about 400 more students than NDSU.

Amongst the challenges will be Armaost addressing poor employee confidence in budgetary cuts and academic changes; seeking to improve student retention and degree rates; attracting more doctoral students to energize and reinforce research capabilities; greater collaboration with North Dakota State University on research to avoid duplication; promote distance and online education and adapt to new teaching methods; addressing lack of diversity and inclusion on campus; and dealing with a difficult transition to athletics Division I at a school known to her because of great time hockey.

As a member of the senior leadership team of the Air Force Academy, Armacost was part of the team that led an annual operating budget of over $ 500 million and a capital improvement portfolio of almost $ 1 billion. Due to the Academy's sponsored research program of more than $ 50 million each year, the largest research program is funded by the nation among undergraduate schools.

The senior board members say that Armacost supports shared governance, academic freedom, inclusion, student growth, and applied learning and research.

One of Armacost's tasks in the Air Force was the principal Air Force Space Order analyst and program manager for systems supporting the information community and the White House. He is the second executive in the University's North Dakota System with an extensive military background. Chancellor Mark Hagerott became an expert and professor of the Navy.

Armacost will start his new job on 1 July.
