Frank Young has been appointed the new associate vice president of facilities, replacing Jim Michaelis who recently retired. Young is currently the senior director of space development, planning and engineering at UVU.

“We are excited that Frank has accepted these new responsibilities in facilities. His experience, wealth of knowledge and ability to work with people will allow the University to move to the next level and continue to meet the needs of the community,” said Val Peterson, vice president for finance and administration. “Frank’s background in facilities planning is extremely important as we plan for the future on the University’s new property [225 acres in Vineyard, Utah].”

Young has served in his current position at UVU the past 13 years and has been an integral part of the rapid growth and development of the University’s infrastructure. He has had leadership responsibilities for physical plant, grounds, parking, police and planning.

He has developed such major projects as the Liberal Arts Building, the Wasatch Campus, Brent Brown Ballpark, the Library, the Science Building, and the new Student Life & Wellness Center. Young’s first major project will be the opening of UVU’s new Classroom Building in December. The additional 244,000 square feet will provide students with study and learning spaces, including more than 3,000 classroom seats per hour.

“I am excited to work more closely with staff members in facilities and continue participating in the growth and reputation of UVU,” said Young.

A graduate of BYU in construction management, he was the building code administrator at the University of South Florida before taking his position with UVU. A resident of Springville, Utah, he serves as vice chair of the city’s planning commission.
