Utah State University is rearranging its commercialization and advancement offices. The two divisions will be combined under the leadership of Rob Behunin, who will lead the joint effort as the new vice president for university advancement and commercialization.
Behunin has been at USU for ten years, seven of which spent on advancement and community development work. He's a tenured, full professor of English, though his new role won't include any traditional classroom teaching. He says he hopes to build on USU's already successful development campaign.

The Cache Valley community will remember the owner Northern Utah’s family-run ski resort during funeral services Wednesday. Ted Seeholzer, owner and operator of Beaver Mountain, passed away last week.

Beaver Mountain is known as the place where the locals ski. When you ski the beave, you are adopted into a community, a family that lifts your spirits while lifting you to that next run.
