(Mayville, ND) -- Tensions are rising in a Red River Valley college community, as some community members say they've become concerned following "unexpected departures of faculty and staff."

These concerns at Mayville State University are prompting community members to gather this Wednesday at 5:15 p.m. and proceed to the main building on Mayville State's campus, Old Main, where community members say college administration has been asked, by the community, "to make public comment to the community and the press."

A request for comment from Mayville State University President Brian Van Horn has not yet been responded to.
