The Board of Trustees of Brigham Young University (BYU) — chaired by President Russell M. Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints — has appointed C. Shane Reese as the university’s 14th president.

President C. Shane Reese.

Reese will succeed Kevin J Worthen, who has served as president since 2014, on May 1, 2023.

Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve made the announcement on Tuesday, March 21, 2023, during the weekly BYU devotional in Provo, Utah. In an emotional moment, the Worthens wept openly as they received a standing ovation.

Reese has served as BYU’s academic vice president since 2019. Before that, he was dean of the College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences from 2017 to 2019 and joined the BYU statistics faculty in 2001. He and his wife, Wendy Wood Reese, are the parents of three children.
