    Inline image 2Charles A. Wight, the 12th president of Weber State University, is a distinguished scholar and academic leader with more than three decades of experience in higher education.

    Wight’s presidential priorities for WSU include:

    • Keeping college affordable

    • Expanding the diversity of the university in order to reflect the diversity of its community

    • Maintaining beautiful and sustainable campuses

    • Leveraging innovative teaching methods to promote student success

    • Fostering community partnerships

    Among his accomplishments are the signing of a College Town charter with Ogden City and leading the university during the public phase of its Dream 125 comprehensive fundraising campaign. Under Wight’s guidance, the university expanded eligibility for its Dream Weber program, which provides up to eight semesters of full tuition and fees for eligible low-income students.

    Prior to his appointment at Weber State, Wight served three years as dean of the Graduate School at the University of Utah, where he also served in other administrative and faculty roles since 1984. A physical chemist, he researches the chemistry of explosives and propellants. He is the co-author of more than 150 peer-reviewed publications, three patent filings and two books. Wight was named an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellow and was designated a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He is a member of the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society. Wight received the University of Utah’s 1985 Outstanding Teaching Award in Chemistry from students and has also received the R.W. Parry Teaching Award in Chemistry.

    Wight is married to Victoria Rasmussen and is the father of three grown daughters. In his free time, he enjoys running, backpacking, learning to play golf, and serving as a volunteer pilot for Angel Flight West, a nonprofit charity providing free non-emergency medical transportation for patients with compelling needs.

    Collette Mercier Portrait

    Collette Mercier has been employed at Ogden-Weber Tech College since 1984. During her tenure, she has had a broad range of assignments and has been promoted to positions of successively greater responsibility as a result of hard work, proven leadership abilities, strong communication and interpersonal skills, and a firm commitment to the tech college and its mission. Serving as president since 2007, she knows the college’s strengths and challenges.  President Mercier is totally committed to the college’s
    mission as a technical college – “We build a prosperous community by creating a technically skilled workforce one student at a time.” 

    President Mercier works extensively with employers, community leaders and legislators to address
    workforce shortages and ensure that college programs address local workforce needs.  She directs the development of strategic and annual business plans, addressing local needs and maintaining the tech college’s position as a leader
    in career and technical education.
      

    As public relations and development coordinator in the mid to late 1980s, Ms. Mercier played a lead role in marketing the college’s move to its current location and reactivating the college’s Foundation. She served as the executive director for the Foundation until 1994 and was involved in numerous successful fund raising efforts.

    Under Ms. Mercier’s leadership as vice president for instructional services from 1994 to 2007, the tech college achieved enrollment growth of nearly 40 percent and placement growth of over 50 percent. Ms. Mercier developed a very positive relationship with faculty, building upon an understanding of respective roles and a joint commitment to serving students and employers. Ms. Mercier served as the first chief academic officer for the Utah College of Applied Technology (UCAT).
