Satterlee has worked in higher education in Idaho for more than 20 years, most recently as chief operating officer, vice president and special counsel at Boise State University. He is a graduate of Boise State and the University of Idaho Law School, where he graduated third in his class.
His hiring and contract were approved April 5, the board said.
Satterlee will take over as president at ISU on June 18. His annual salary will be $370,000, the board said. He replaces President Arthur Vailas, who announced his retirement after a decade at the helm of the university in Pocatello.
Idaho State is a public university with enrollment of about 12,600.
