When Duane Nellis departs this summer, the university will be on its sixth president – four interim and two who stayed four years each – since the resignation of Robert Hoover in 2003.

“We need to find someone who is going to be there,” Ken Edmunds, immediate past board president, told the Idaho Statesman. “It is highly detrimental to keep having this turnover.”
