Board To Begin Search For New University Of Idaho President

MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) - The Idaho State Board of Education has agreed to form a search committee to begin the hunt for a new president at the University of Idaho.
    
The board voted Tuesday to form a screening committee comprised of up to 16 UI stakeholders. The board will also begin looking for an interim president to take over if Duane Nellis moves on to Texas Tech University.
    
Last week Nellis announced plans to leave the Moscow-based campus after being selected as the sole finalist for the presidential spot at Texas Tech. Nellis took over UI's top administrative post in 2009 after an 11-month search.
    
Since 2003, UI has had four different leaders, including two presidents and two interim presidents.
