State Board of Regents reaction to F. Ann Millner stepping down from Weber State University presidency
Millner became president at WSU in 2002. Prior to that, she worked for two decades in other areas of that institution including university advancement, community partnerships and continuing education. Regent Nolan Karras, Board of Regents Chair at the time of Millner’s appointment said, “Ten years ago, Ann Millner was selected to lead Weber State University because of her experience at the institution, as well as her ability to lead faculty, students and staff. She has more than proven that she is also a key leader in Northern Utah.”
“President Millner’s connection to Weber State has spanned a number of decades, and her leadership has truly made that institution a community leader,” said Commissioner Bill Sederburg. “I know that Ann is Wildcat purple through and through, and has set a tremendous standard for the individual who is selected to replace her.”
During Millner’s tenure as president, she has led numerous successful efforts including reaccreditation, increased student engagement, revitalization of the Ogden Campus and opening of the new Davis County campus. Chair of the State Board of Regents David Jordan said, “We are appreciative of President Millner’s dedication and commend the progress that Weber State University has made under her leadership.” Millner also helped the school complete a $90 million capital campaign.
Commissioner Sederburg said the State Board of Regents will begin a search for a new president as soon as possible.
