Elder Dallin H. Oaks recently announced that Henry J. Eyring will be the next President of BYU-Idaho.
This would have been a great opportunity to diversify LDS Church leadership. Was a woman even considered? Was a non-white considered? Was someone with roots outside of Utah/Idaho considered? Was someone not a product of the Church education system considered?
Instead, we have a white male whose father is a General Authority. Whose father was a past president of Ricks College (a precursor to BYU-Idaho). A man who earned all of his degrees at BYU-Provo. A man who is currently employed at BYU-Idaho. Hardly a glowing example of the diversity which exists in the membership.
As far as I know, there is no priesthood requirement to be President of BYU-Idaho. This was another opportunity to diversify that is lost.
