The Idaho State Board of Education today announced it will extend the search for the next president of Boise State University.

The decision was announced during an open board meeting held on the Boise State campus, one day after the board conducted interviews with three finalists.

“This does not reflect on the finalists – all are very qualified and accomplished,” Board President Linda Clark said.

The Board will next work to identify and appoint an interim president, while it continues the search.

“Extending the search was the right decision for the board to make,” Clark said. “We are committed to taking the time necessary to find an outstanding leader who is the best fit for Boise State University.”
