UI President Turnover Causing Some Concern

Idaho State Board of Education Vice President Don Soltman says the apparent departure of another University of Idaho president is a cause for concern.

The school since 2003 has had four different leaders. That has included two presidents and two interim presidents.

On Friday, regents at Texas Tech University selected UI President Duane Nellis as the lone finalist to become that school's president. State law requires 21 days to pass before final action is taken on the appointment.

Soltman says it's disappointing because the University of Idaho needs stability and Nellis has provided that.

Soltman says Nellis has agreed to continue at UI through June. Nellis started in 2009.
