University of Northern Colorado’s Next President Is From California

April 11, 2018

A top administrator at San Jose State University will become the University of Northern Colorado's next president.

The Tribune reports the university announced on Tuesday that Andy Feinstein will replace Kay Norton, who will retire at the end of this academic year.

Feinstein serves as the provost and senior vice president for academic affairs at San Jose State University.

From the Tribune:

Before he joined SJSU, Feinstein was in professorial and administrative positions at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and Cal Poly Pomona. He earned bachelor's and master's degrees in hotel administration from UNLV and a doctorate in man-environment relations from Penn State. He also recently was a candidate for the University of Montana's presidential opening.

Feinstein will come to the Greeley university as it is facing financial challenges and low enrollment.

The university's Chief Financial Officer Michelle Quinn said in an email to faculty last week that the university's reserves will be exhausted by August 2021.
