Committee Convenes to Discuss Future Needs of ISU Presidential Residence Facility

February 13, 2015

As previously announced, a committee of constituent leaders has been assembled to assist with the public process and discussion related to the needs of the ISU presidential facility, one of the University’s 88 facilities.

The mission of this independent fact-finding committee is to assess the current condition of Servel House, which has been Idaho State University’s presidential residence facility for the last 63 years, and whether it should be repaired, renovated or restructured for the needs of the University today and into the future, and other potential options.

At the conclusion of their work the committee will provide a written recommendation to the administration for possible solutions that best fulfill the needs of the University.

The following committee includes representatives from the University’s alumni, faculty, staff, students, as well as community leaders: Dirk Driscoll, Shelbie Harris, Kim Hirning, Valerie Hoybjerg–committee chair, Sarah Knudson, Amy Manning, Phil Meador, Eva Nye, Dan Ordyna, Tom Ottaway, Jordan Reed, John Sargent, Corey Schou, Jenny Semenza, Syd Sharp, Kyle Son and Josh Tolman.
