MOSCOW — The State Board of Education announced today that Don Burnett will serve as interim president at the University of Idaho.

Burnett, who is dean of the college of law, will lead the school as it searches for a successor to Duane Nellis. The Texas Tech Board of Regents officially hired Nellis Friday as its next chief executive, and he will leave the UI at the end of June after four years at the helm.

The board also authorized the formation of a search committee that will work over the next several months to permanently fill the position. That committee will be made up of no more than 16 diverse UI stakeholders.

The last selection of a UI chief executive ended following an 11-month national search with the hire of Nellis, then provost at Kansas State University.
