ISU hopes to hire new president by year’s end

The search for Idaho State University’s next president will be on a fast track.

The new president should be on board by Jan. 1, eliminating the need for an interim president, Idaho State said in a news release Monday.

State Board of Education members Cally Roach and Cindy Siddoway will head the search committee. Both are Idaho State alums.

“We are eager to work with ISU stakeholders to find the next president to lead the university to new heights in the coming years,” Siddoway said in a news release.

The next step for the board is to assemble a search committee, which will include university representatives, alumni and community members. The board will also hire an executive search firm to help in the recruiting.

The board is looking for a successor to Kevin Satterlee, who on June 12 announced he will retire at the end of the year.
