“UTEP is a compelling institution,” Logan said in the release. “To be among the top universities in the country in both research activity and student social mobility is impressive. I am honored to join the Miner family.”

Logan comes from Ball State University, where he served as the vice president for advancement and president of the Ball State University Foundation release.

“I’m confident Jake will help take UTEP to the next level,” said UTEP President Heather Wilson in the release. “Building a culture of philanthropy is a long-term commitment, and Jake has the experience to make us even better.”
