Kluck selected as MSU facilities director
Roger Kluck has been named the new director of facilities at Minot State University. Kluck has been the Ward County highway engineer and county park supervisor since 2002. Prior to that, he was the owner/manager of the Wold Engineering Office in Minot for 12 years. Kluck will begin at MSU on Jan. 16.
"Mr. Kluck brings with him a wealth of experience in areas needed by MSU. Notable strengths cited by the committee included his background in engineering and management experience," said Ron Dorn, vice president for administration and finance and supervisor. "It also will be positive for Minot State University to have representation through Roger on many of the community boards and organizations in which he is involved."
"I applied for the position because it looked like an exciting challenge, and I have had an interest in working in higher education," said Kluck. "I am looking forward to working with the great people in plant services, President David Fuller and Vice President Dorn to implement long-term planning that will benefit students and help support MSUís strategic plan, Vision 2013."
Kluck earned a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering from North Dakota State University. He is currently a registered professional engineer in North Dakota and Minnesota. He is a past board member of the Minot Area Chamber of Commerce, has been a member of the chamberís Infrastructure Committee since 1990, and is a member of the Steering Committee for the Ward County Emergency Resource Council.
Three finalists from Minot, including Kluck, interviewed at MSU during late November and early December. Dick Jenkins, vice president for student affairs, chaired the search. He was assisted by an advisory committee comprised of students, faculty and staff.
