OGDEN — Weber State University has a new interim president.
Tarbox has been at Weber State University since 2002. Prior to Weber State, he worked for 10 years for the Utah State Board of Regents.
“My focus will be on keeping Weber State University moving forward,” Tarbox told the Standard-Examiner shortly after the announcement was made.
He said in the meantime, his job will be to “support (President Charles Wight) in any way I can.”
Tarbox will replace Wight, who announced Jan. 18 he was stepping down. Wight is one of three candidates in the running for president of Idaho State University.
Dan Campbell, the state Board of Regents chair, said Friday in a news release that Tarbox’s experience will help make the transition a successful one.
“Dr. Tarbox is the longest-serving vice president at Weber State University and has experienced several administrative changes during his time at the institution,” Campbell said. “He is well-prepared to serve Weber State in this role, and the board is confident he will successfully shepherd Weber State through this transition.”
