BYU-Idaho

Marcia Franklin talks with Dr. Kim Clark, the president of BYU-Idaho, the state's largest private university. The school is affiliated with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Clark took the helm of the institution, which has more than 11,000 students, after being asked by the president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to accept the post. Clark had been the Dean of the Harvard Business School for 10 years.

President Clark talks with Franklin about his plans for the school, (formerly known as Ricks College,) and how the university fits in with Idaho's other academic institutions.

Dr. Kim Clark was born in Salt Lake City, Utah. He holds Bachelor's, Master's and Doctoral degrees in economics from Harvard University, where he taught from 1978 to 2005. He served two years as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the South German Mission.
