Jeremy Freeman recently made the decision to resign from his position as Director of Facilities Operations with Facilities Services at the conclusion of his FY 22 contract.
Freeman was an important member of the Facilities Services leadership team, providing leadership to all maintenance and operations units since his arrival in January of 2021.

Wagner has demonstrated a great commitment to Idaho State University and his willingness to expand his leadership role with the Facilities Services team is deeply appreciated. He will begin his interim appointment as Director of Facilities Operations, overseeing maintenance, grounds, heat plant, and other facilities operations units effective July 25, 2022. Facilities Services plans to announce a search for this position on a non-interim basis during the upcoming academic year.
