Biographical Note/Historical Note +/-
Dr. Elizabeth J. Hitch served as Vice President of Academic Affairs when she was asked to serve as Interim President in 2008-2009 following the presidency of William A. Sederburg. During her term as Interim President, Dr. Hitch navigated UVU through one of its most fiscally trying years by courageously deciding to absorb extreme budget cuts with minimal consequences to the institution. She returned to serve as Vice President for the following year before accepting her current position as Associate Commissioner of Academic Affairs at the Utah System of Higher Education. Liz has devoted considerable time to the pursuit of excellence in education. Before coming to Utah she served as Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Professor at the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse, and was Interim Chancellor for ten months. She served as Dean of the College of Education and Professional Studies at Eastern Illinois University; was a tenured faculty member and administrator at Central Michigan University; and an instructional designer at the University of Michigan. She has a doctoral degree in educational psychology from the University of Michigan and baccalaureate and master’s degrees in family ecology from Michigan State University.
