Office of the President
March 27, 2013I’m pleased that the University of Idaho Board of Regents has selected Donald L. Burnett, Jr. as the interim president. He will step into this role when I leave in June.
Dean Burnett comes with a wealth of experience and knowledge of our university and its people.
I certainly remain committed to my job here at Idaho and doing everything I can to continue to move this institution forward until Ruthie and I leave. I believe that Don will also work to keep moving our institution forward as a leading 21st century, land-grant research university. Ruthie and I will certainly work to help Don and his spouse Karen make this transition as smooth as possible.
Ruthie and I care deeply for the University of Idaho and are so proud of Idaho’s ‘flagship’ national research university. We have had the opportunity to get to know so many wonderful students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends of this very special institution, one that continues to serve the state, nation, and world.
I certainly wish Don well!
