MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) -- New University of Idaho President Chuck Staben has only been on the job for four days, and his initial focus is on boosting this fall's enrollment.

Staben, during his first university address, said he expects to see strong efforts put toward recruitment for the Moscow campus, particularly of Idaho students.
 
The State Board of Education selected Staben as UI's 18th president in November to replace Duane Nellis, who left campus last year to lead Texas Tech University.
 
The 55-year-old Staben took the reins at Idaho on Saturday.
 
Staben said he also plans to look at Idaho's research and opportunities the institution has to participate in high-end research as a land-grant university.
