In this new position, Heperi will become a member of the president’s council, the university’s central administrative body. His focus will be to assist students from a variety of different backgrounds and interests as they navigate their academic experience at BYU and work towards graduation.

“Dr. Heperi has worked tirelessly to help students succeed in his time at BYU and I know he will continue to do so in this new role,” President Worthen said. “He is well qualified for this position, and I have full confidence in his ability to take on the many critical responsibilities that will come with this assignment.”

Heperi received his bachelor’s degree in communications from BYU, his master’s degree in psychology from Utah State University and a doctorate in educational leadership from BYU. He has been at BYU since 1996 and was director of student affairs at Snow College prior to that time.

Heperi will begin his new responsibilities as an Assistant to the President on August 1. He currently serves as Associate Student Life Vice President and Dean of Students and will continue to oversee those responsibilities until his replacement is announced.
