Chadron State College is under new leadership.

Dr. Randy Rhine, a CSC vice president, became the institution's interim president Saturday. His appointment by the Nebraska State College System Board of Trustees follows the seven-year presidency of Dr. Janie Park, who is retiring to Red Lodge, Mont.

The NSCS Board of Trustees approved the appointment of Rhine, which runs to June 30, 2013, at its April meeting.

Rhine came to CSC in December 2005 as an assistant to the president, and has served as CSC vice president for enrollment management and student services since May 2006. He also has led the CSC College Relations unit since 2008.

Rhine was dean of the College of Professional Studies and Lifelong Learning at Montana State University at Billings, working under Park’s supervision, for nine years prior to coming to CSC.

Rhine earned all three of his degrees from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville. He was a member of that institution’s Division of Continuing Education for 12 years, serving approximately four years each as director of conferences, assistant dean and associate dean.
