CALDWELL — The College of Idaho President Marv Henberg announced Tuesday morning he will retire in June 2015. A national search for the college's 13th president will begin immediately, according to a release.
Under Henberg's leadership, C of I grew its enrollment to a record 1,122 students in fall 2013. The current year’s student body also is the most diverse in the history of the C of I, with approximately 9 percent of students coming from other countries and more than 21 percent being domestic students of color.
By 2015, two significant initiatives of his presidency — the master’s program in physician assistant studies and the return of the College’s football team — will be well underway, which Henberg said provides the optimal time for a presidential transition.
Henberg and his wife, Laurie, say they are looking forward to more time for travel and volunteer work following retirement.
