The Future Of CSI


By Andrew Reed

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Changes are coming to the College of Southern Idaho.

The big change is a search for a new president, this, after Jerry Beck announced he was stepping down back in June.

Students and faculty members are one step closer to having a new CSI president.

So far, the history of the school only holds three presidents.

"We are on the search for the fourth president in CSI's history. We have contracted with Association of Community Colleges Trustees out of Washington D.C. to help us with the search” said Dr. Al Frost, Chair of search committee.

The search committee is on track, they're currently in the recruiting phase, applications are due on September 13th.

"We are looking for someone who has significant experience in administration at the community college level; they need to have a master's degree with preference of a doctorate” said Dr. Frost.

The search includes the public, students, and faculty input.

That’s because CSI is known to be integrated into the community.

"CSI has done so much in instruction, economic development, and many other areas that it's involved in” said Curtis Eaton, Interim President.

The college of Southern Idaho is one of the fastest growing institutions of higher education in the state and soon will have a new leader.

The search committee hopes to announce a new president by late October or early November.
