LOGAN, Utah, Feb. 3, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — Utah State University President Stan L. Albrecht announced on Wednesday that he will step down as president.
Albrecht, who served more than 10 years in his post, said he will remain on the job until a successor is selected. He announced his decision in a letter sent to USU’s faculty and staff.
“The journey has been a truly remarkable one,” Albrecht wrote. “While I will miss the opportunity that has been mine to lead this very special place, I will also look forward to the satisfaction that will come in watching its successes under new leadership.”
Announcing the decision now will allow the state Board of Regents and the USU Board of Trustees time to conduct a thorough search for a new president, Albrecht said in the letter.
“The fortunate person they select for the assignment will inherit stewardship over a university that continues a trajectory of ever-increasing excellence,” Albrecht said. “I am proud of the many things we have accomplished together that have accelerated that course.”
