President Nadauld, who will officially retire this summer, will deliver his final annual “State of the University” address, which will include a recap of the DSU Commencement exercises, updated information on degree offerings, enrollment, and university benchmarks, among other topics. He will also answer questions following the presentation.
Nadauld was appointed interim president of then-Dixie State College on March 27, 2008. Then on January 15, 2010, the Utah State Board of Regents unanimously voted to permanently appoint Nadauld as the 17th president of DSU, and he was formally inaugurated two months later on March 19, 2010. Previously, Nadauld had served as president of Weber State University from 1985 to 1990.
Nadauld has held several positions at BYU’s Marriott Graduate School of Management, including director of the Master of Business Administration program from 1980-1983, and assistant and associate professor of finance from 1976-1983. He has also served as an instructor of finance at both the University of California-Berkeley and the University of Utah.
A native of Idaho Falls, Idaho, Nadauld earned a doctorate from UC-Berkeley, a Master of Business Administration from Harvard Business School, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry, with minors in mathematics, physics and French from BYU. He has also attended the University of Idaho and Ricks College. In addition, he currently serves as a board member for the O.C. Tanner Corporation and the Utah Higher Education Assistance Authority (UHEAA), and is a former board member with the Deseret Book Corp.
The President’s Colleagues of Dixie State University, established more than 20 years ago by former DSU President Dr. Douglas Alder, is a group of retired professors and other professionals who live mostly in the St. George and Washington County area. Dr. Alder, who also started an Honors Program at DSU, organized the Colleagues as a way to increase academic activities on campus.
The Colleagues meet together once a month during the academic year to hear presentations from each other and/or invited guests. The Colleagues series will return for the 2014-15 academic on Monday, October 6.
