Executive Officer

UI Names Satz Executive Officer for Southwestern Idaho

Mike Satz of the University of IdahoThe University of Idaho has appointed Michael Satz to serve as its executive officer for southwestern Idaho. He will be based at UI Boise and begins August 11, 2014.

Satz was most recently a professor in the UI College of Law, where he served as interim dean from May 2013 until June 2014. He has been with the university since 2006.

As executive officer,  Satz will represent the university and President Chuck Staben in the region. He will support the president’s agenda by providing visibility and building positive and productive relationships with university stakeholders in southwest Idaho. 

“The University of Idaho’s Boise Center is vitally important to the university's statewide mission,” said UI President Chuck Staben. “Michael Satz’s background will help the University of Idaho build even stronger connections with Idaho businesses, government entities and people in the Boise area.”

Satz also will work with university vice-presidents, deans and other senior leadership to support legislative engagement, strengthen relationships with municipalities and public agencies, provide outreach to business, and support student enrollment. In addition, he will provide administrative leadership for management of the Water Center facility in Boise and act as a catalyst to support academic programs, faculty and staff in southwest Idaho.

Satz succeeds Trudy Anderson, who retired in December 2013 as the associate vice president and CEO of the UI Boise.

Satz said he is excited by the opportunity to serve the university and the state in his new position.

“The university has a dynamic presence in the southwest region and employs many wonderful faculty and staff that serve the community. I am looking forward to working with these excellent people in furthering the University of Idaho’s mission,” he said. 

“The university’s leadership team has shown that it is particularly interested in creating new avenues to positively impact the community in this part of the state. I am enthusiastic about this new trajectory. I will strive to strengthen the university’s relationships with business, civic, educational, and governmental leaders in hopes that by working together we will continue to increase the ways in which University of Idaho can positively influence the lives and the culture of the citizens and businesses in southwest Idaho. Go Vandals!”

Satz came to UI in 2006 as an associate professor in the College of Law. He taught courses in consumer law, creditors’ rights and secured transactions, contracts, property security, critical legal studies, and architecture and the law. He earned tenure in 2011 and was appointed as the associate dean for faculty affairs for the College of Law in 2012.

He received a bachelor’s degree in history and political science from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. He later received his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Michigan Law School. Prior to coming to the University of Idaho, Satz worked for Nissan North American, Inc.
