U of I President Duane Nellis

University of Idaho's new President Duane Nellis spent his first few weeks in office traveling the state. He listened to political leaders, alumni, and citizens all over Idaho. This week on Dialogue, Nellis explains what he heard. Host Joan Cartan-Hansen will also talk with Nellis about why he decided to take the job, how he will deal with a tight budget, and what his plans are for Idaho's oldest university.

Nellis became the University of Idaho's 17th president on July 1. A Spokane, Washington, native, Nellis comes to U of I after serving as provost and senior vice president of Kansas State University.
