Presidential Search Announcement
On behalf of the Utah Board of Higher Education and the Utah Tech University Board of Trustees, we are pleased to announce that we are officially starting the search for the 19th president of Utah Tech University.
As an institution in the midst of unprecedented growth, we look forward to finding a visionary leader who displays exemplary leadership skills, deeply values the university’s rich culture and traditions, and embraces our open, inclusive, comprehensive polytechnic mission.
As directed by Utah state policy, our 14-member search committee includes key stakeholders from Utah Tech, the Utah Board of Higher Education, and the Southern Utah community. The search committee’s role is to manage the process up until it names 3-5 finalists to be considered by the Board of Higher Education. The Board of Higher Education will conduct the final interviews and select the new president.
As part of this process, we will begin by holding three public listening sessions to gain valuable feedback about what characteristics and future vision the next leader of our beloved university should possess. These listening sessions are open to students, faculty, staff, and community members. Those unable to attend these meetings are encouraged to submit a comment online by emailing email@example.com or submitting a comment online at ushe.edu/utah-tech-anonymous-feedback. We welcome your input and suggestions.
As is standard in executive searches on this level, the Board of Higher Education has retained the services of AGB Search to assist with the process, including recruitment, to ensure we have the highest caliber of candidates possible. AGB will also help us compile the feedback from the listening sessions to create and develop the Presidential Leadership Profile before the application period begins.
We have established a general timeline for the search process and look forward to sharing updates as it progresses. We invite you to join us in the search for the next President of Utah Tech University!
