The flagship flap isn't going away anytime soon.
Idaho's State Board of Education voted uananimously on Feb. 16 to remove "flagship" from the University of Idaho's mission satement, in spite of university President Duane Nellis' insistance that the removal could have "negative connotations."
Joe Stegner, former Lewiston Republican state senator and current special assistant to Nellis for state governmental relations, told the Moscow-Pullman Daily News that he will be meeting with state lawmakers regarding the issue on Monday.
"It's just trying to get together with a few of the people that have expressed interest in possible resolutions dealing with the flagship issue," Stegner told the Daily News. "I'm not aware of anbody who has plans to introduce anything. I know that some people are interested in it."
