The University of Washington has chosen Michael Young to be its new president, according to sources familiar with the search.
The sources, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told The Seattle Times on Friday that Young, 61, president at the University of Utah since 2004, is the choice of the UW Board of Regents. The regents are expected to make the announcement Monday....
....The University of Utah is the state's oldest and largest higher-education institution. As of last fall, it enrolled 23,000 undergraduate and 7,000 graduate students.
The UW has 43,000 students on its main Seattle campus, of which 28,000 are undergraduates. Including its branches in Tacoma and Bothell, it has 49,000 students.
I'm sad to see Young go. So much money flowed into the school under his leadership and many a projects have been completed, are under construction or planned to begin construction as part of his empire expanding ways. He guided us through the process of becoming a PAC 12 University. I hope we can fill his big shoes.
And I'm pretty sure this article is wrong in that the U of U is the 3rd largest higher-education institution after UVU and BYU.
