Stacy Klippenstein, Montana State University Billings' vice chancellor for student affairs, has accepted a job as president of Miles Community College.

He'll start the new position on Jan. 6, 2014, according to a news release from MSUB.

"Stacy has been a tremendous contributor to the success of MSU Billings and the Montana University System," said Chancellor Rolf Groseth. "He will be greatly missed."

Klippenstein was hired as vice chancellor at MSUB in 2006 and oversaw all student affairs and handled enrollment.

He earned a bachelor's degree in education from Eastern Montana College — since renamed as MSUB — and earned a master's degree there in 1994 in student affairs administration.

He earned his doctorate from Nova Southeastern University in 2007 and, in addition to MSUB, has worked at Texas Tech University, Northern Arizona University and Central Washington University.

"I will personally miss his experience and advice in our deliberations on university-wide issues," Groseth said in a news statement. "However, the community of Miles City and the students who attend MCC will be gaining someone who thoroughly knows Montana and two-year education."

Klippenstein was traveling and unavailable for comment on Friday afternoon.

A formal search to replace Klippenstein will begin in the spring semester of 2014.
