TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) — A provost from a New York community college will be the College of Southern Idaho’s next president.
L. Dean Fisher, the provost of the State University of New York’s Corning Community College, will be CSI’s fifth president when he replaces retiring president Jeff Fox in June, The Times-News reported Monday.
Fisher said in a prepared statement that he was pleased to have the confidence of CSI’s board of trustees, and said he would work with Fox during the coming weeks for the transition.
“It was clear to me during the search process that CSI faculty and staff fulfill a mission in their daily work,” he said. “Every day, thanks to their work, amazing and inspiring students find their own pathway to the American Dream in a region that values their success.”
Fisher has been at Corning Community College since 2017. Fox has worked at CSI for more than 32 two years and became president in 2013.
