Dean Wilson was recently named vice president of student services at Uintah Basin Technical College (UBTech) effective August 14.

Wilson has been serving as the principal at Altamont High School for the last two years. He was previously principal at Roosevelt Junior High School, student services director at Duchesne County School District and also had a private consulting business. He brings knowledge in education as well as leadership and administrative experience as he oversees registration, financial aid, scholarships, retention, and other student service related activities.

“We are pleased that Vice President Wilson will be joining UBTech,” Aaron Weight, UBTech president, said. “Vice President Wilson is a motivating professional. He will continue to inspire and work hard to help each student reach their potential in the technical college environment for both secondary and post-secondary students. His proven leadership skills and student involvement will become valuable to the success of the student services department.”

This position became vacated when Bob Peterson was named vice president of development and marketing, a newly created position at UBTech.

“UBTech is in prime position to grow in the areas of student services in addition to marketing and development,” Said Weight. “With our goal and vision for the future vice president Wilson is a valuable asset to student services and vice president Peterson can expand marketing and development for our foundation and community.”

Wilson has a bachelor’s degree in education from Westminster College and a master’s degree in educational leadership and administration from Western Governors University. He is currently pursuing a doctorate degree (Ed.D) in educational leadership from the University of Wyoming.

“I’m excited for the opportunity to join the mission and vision of UBTech,” said Wilson. “I’ll be joining an outstanding team with a proven track record of excellence. In leaving Altamont and Duchesne County School District I wish them nothing but the best. The community support and staff commitment will ensure their continued success.”

Wilson and his wife, Nichole, reside in Roosevelt and are the parents of twin girls Peyton and Pyper.
