REXBURG — Brigham Young University-Idaho is pleased to announce the appointment of Nick Rammell as its new Dean of Students. He replaces Wynn Hill who served as the Dean of Students since 2019 before transitioning to a new role in the Counseling Center this year.

Rammell brings a depth of academic, professional, and student affairs experience to this position. For the last 10 years, he has served the university in a variety of capacities including: Student Honor Administrator, Associate Dean of Students, Adjunct Faculty in Religious Education, and Title IX Coordinator. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Social Work from Brigham Young University-Idaho, a Master of Education with an emphasis in Higher Education Leadership from the University of Arkansas, and a Juris Doctorate from the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University.

In this important role, Rammell will oversee the Dean of Students Office and five key organizations vital to student experience and building discipleship. These offices include Accessibility Services, Counseling Center, Housing & Student Living, Student Honor Office, and Title IX. Great care will be taken to foster the Spirit of BYU-Idaho as student needs are met in situations of crisis and daily growth as disciples of Jesus Christ. This newly created division of the university will be integral in fostering a Christ-centered educational environment where students can thrive academically, develop spiritually, and prepare for lives of service and leadership in their homes, the Church, and their communities.
