Bozeman--Greg Weisenstein, Montana State University's dean of the College of Education, Health and Human Development, will become provost and vice president for academic affairs at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, beginning Aug. 1.

"While I am very excited about this new opportunity, my wife Sandra and I will certainly miss Montana State University and the Bozeman area," said Weisenstein, who with his wife, enjoys wildlife and landscape photography. Their son, Adam, plans to graduate from MSU's College of Engineering in December.

"Perhaps the most difficult aspect of moving will be leaving the many valued colleagues and friends that we have come to know over the last six years," he said, adding that he plans to retire in Gallatin Valley someday. "For me, MSU's College of Education, Health and Human Development will always be synonymous with strong and dedicated faculty, talented staff and students who have high values and a strong work ethic."

With Weisenstein at its helm, the college attracted enhanced revenue sources to support innovative ideas. The college instigated new projects such as the Northern Plains Troops to Teachers distance-delivered teacher certification program, which has become a national model for distance-learning programs for teachers.

Prior to Weisenstein's departure, MSU's Provost's Office will name an interim dean to lead the college's 1,459 students and 55 faculty members.
