Utah State University announced last week that it has appointed David Woolstenhulme as vice president of its regional campuses, including the one in Moab. Woolstenhulme will start at USU on Aug. 1.

Reporting to USU President Noelle Cockett, Woolstenhulme will be responsible for the non-academic operations of regional campuses including facilities, budget, recruitment and enrollment management. “He will help drive innovation and strategic initiatives that promote the regional campuses,” according to a press release from USU.

“Dave’s extensive experience with USU’s regional campuses and statewide technical education makes him a perfect choice to lead new efforts in regional campus function and growth,” Cockett said. “His demonstrated commitment and passion to statewide higher education, coupled with his depth of knowledge about our mission, will serve our students well as he leads the 33 regional campuses and centers.”

Woolstenhulme returns to USU following his tenure as commissioner of the Utah system of technical colleges where he led eight regional technical colleges throughout the State of Utah: Bridgerland Technical College, Davis Technical College, Dixie Technical College, Mountainland Technical College, Ogden-Weber Technical College, Tooele Technical College, Southwest Technical College and Uintah Basin Technical College.

“On behalf of the board of trustees, I thank Commissioner Woolstenhulme for his service to technical education and Utah’s Technical Colleges,” said Utah System of Technical Colleges Board Chairman Jim Evans. “Dave is a remarkable leader and has worked tirelessly on behalf of Utah’s students and taxpayers. His efforts have strengthened our system as evidenced through his leadership of major policy overhaul, record funding for programs and coalition building with partners throughout the state. We wish Commissioner Woolstenhulme well in his new role at Utah State University and look forward to furthering our many partnerships with that school,” said Evans.
