LOGAN – The new administrator for Utah State University’s statewide campuses spent more than 20 years of his life as an alpine climbing guide, leading expeditions to North and South America, Europe and Asia before beginning a profession in education.

Starting in 1992, James Y. Taylor began service as a leader at multiple institutions before he joined the USU leadership team almost a decade ago.

This week, USU President Elizabeth Cantwell elevated him from interim vice president to vice-president for Statewide Campuses.

He has served in leadership roles at the USU Uintah Basin and USU Eastern campuses.

He earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees at the University of Utah and Montana State and he holds a doctorate in educational leadership and organizational development from Grand Canyon University.
