Brigham Young University Academic Vice President Shane Reese has appointed Logan Gillette as the interim dean of BYU Graduate Studies, following the appointment of current dean John “Keoni” S.K. Kauwe as the president of BYU Hawaii.
Gillette will serve as interim dean beginning July 1, until a permanent replacement is appointed.
“I am grateful to Logan for his willingness to serve and I’m confident that his service in this interim role will be a blessing to our students, his colleagues and the university,” said Reese, “He is a thoughtful and collaborative colleague and a dedicated student mentor who is deeply committed to our university mission.”
Gillette holds MPA and juris doctorate degrees from BYU in addition to bachelor’s degrees in political science and pacific island studies from BYU-Hawaii. He joined the BYU Graduate Studies office in 2015 where he has managed the admission and enrollment processes for approximately 2,800 students in BYU’s 89 graduate programs. Gillette is currently an assistant dean in BYU Graduate Studies.
