Seymour to chair committee visit

Tom Seymour, a Minot State University professor, has been selected by the Higher Learning Commis-sion to chair an accreditation visit to the University of Akron in Akron, Ohio, March 4-6. Seymour has participated in more than 60 HLC visits and was given a HLC 30-year service award in 2010.
