Hearing reveals former Williston State College president Joe McCann pushed out

When the former president of Williston State College announced he was resigning from the two-year school, the president of North Dakota's Board of Higher Education praised him as "one of the really nice guys" he'd met in higher education.

Joe McCann said he wanted to seek new challenges. But it turns out McCann was ordered to quit, according to testimony at the hearing of Richard McCallum, the president of Dickinson State University, whom the board has been trying to fire since early August.

William Goetz, chancellor of North Dakota's university system, confirmed that McCann had been told to resign months before he departed in April 2009.

McCann was allowed to remain in his job, which paid him $117,231 annually, for almost a year after he announced he was leaving. He had been criticized for failing to communicate with the school's faculty, which prompted a no-confidence vote, and for spending too much time on off-campus projects.
