PIERRE, S.D. (AP) _ The CEO of the South Dakota Board of Regents is one of three finalists for the job of president of the Connecticut Board of Regents for Higher Education.
KCCR reports that Regents CEO Jack Warner is one of the finalists to lead the Connecticut State College & Universities system, which consists of four universities, 12 two-year colleges and a public online college.
Warner says he was not looking to leave South Dakota, but has family in Rhode Island and is one of the reasons he agreed to be a finalist.
Warner has led the South Dakota higher education system since 2009. Before that, he was the commissioner of the Rhode Island Board of Governors for Higher Education for seven years.
