Heperi served as associate dean of students and director of Multicultural Student Services at BYU prior to his appointment as dean of students two years ago.

Prior to joining the BYU Student Life division in 1996, Heperi was director of student affairs at Snow College, supervising student government, student activities and new student orientation.

An alumnus of the Church College in New Zealand, Heperi received a master's degree in psychology from Utah State University and a doctorate in education from BYU.
