Idaho State Board of Education President Dr. Linda Clark Monday announced the names of those selected to serve on the Boise State University president screening committee.

The 14-person committee will vet candidates, interview semi-finalists, and recommend a list of finalists to the State Board of Education. The State Board will interview finalists and select Boise State’s next president.

“This screening committee is a solid and diverse group representing various Boise State stakeholders,” Clark said. “I look forward to working with them throughout the process as we seek a strong leader who can build on Boise State’s momentum.”
