The Idaho State Board of Education announced that Storbeck Pimentel and Associates will lead the search to find the next president of Boise State University.
Storbeck Pimentel was selected from a list of six firms that submitted proposals. The firm specializes in conducting executive searches in the education and nonprofit sectors and is also leading the search for the University of Idaho’s next president.
State Board President Linda Clark and other board members will serve on a screening committee to vet candidates. Clark will serve as committee chair. The rest of the committee makeup will be determined by Clark in consultation with members of the Boise State campus community. That process will begin immediately.
“We have a solid interim president in place at Boise State, and with the academic year just beginning, this is the optimal time to start the search for Boise State’s next president,” Clark said. “We will get started right away putting together our screening committee, which will include student, faculty and staff representatives, among others. We will seek input from the Boise State campus community and we will keep them informed throughout the process.”
The board plans to select a new Boise State president early next year and have the new president in place on campus at the beginning of the next fiscal year, which starts July 1, 2019. The same timeframe is in place for the University of Idaho president search.
Storbeck Pimentel and Associates will be paid $78,400 plus out-of-pocket expenses by Boise State University.
Information will be available at boisestate.edu/presidentialsearch as the search progresses.
