ST. GEORGE — The president of southern Utah's newly minted university has announced his plans to retire at the end of the school year.
Stephen D. Nadauld, Dixie State University's 17th president, announced his retirement Wednesday after nearly six years leading the school, including two years as interim president. He will remain at his post until a new president can be named and take office, according a university statement.
The Utah State Board of Regents will organize a search committee in the coming weeks to begin its search for the school's next president. Nadauld also served as president of Weber State University from 1985 to 1990.
Formerly a two-year college, Dixie was granted university status and became a four-year institution in February.
During Nadauld's tenure, Dixie has taken the lead as the state's fastest-growing four-year school, awarded an increasing number of degrees and constructed the Jeffrey R. Holland Centennial Commons.
