OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma State System of Higher Education Chancellor Glen D. Johnson has been re-elected to the State Higher Education Executive Officers Executive Committee.

Johnson’s term expires Sept. 30, 2017. Johnson was previously elected to the committee in November 2014 to fill a vacancy and also served consecutive two-year terms in 2008 and 2010.

The Executive Committee is responsible for shaping SHEEO’s federal priorities and strategies and for leading its communications with Congress, the U.S. Department of Education and other federal agencies.

Johnson was named chancellor of the Oklahoma State System of Higher Education in January 2007 following a national search.

Before becoming chancellor, he served as the 16th president of Southeastern Oklahoma State University in Durant for 10 years.
