Keith R. Mulbery Endowed Scholarship for Information Systems
Keith Mulbery, associate dean in the College of Engineering and Technology, Professor, and former Department chair of Information Systems and Technology at Utah Valley University, knew from an early age that he wanted to be an educator. It was in his genes—his mother was an elementary schoolteacher, his grandfather was a principal and superintendent, and his brother is an elementary school principal.
Mulbery received scholarships as an undergraduate, and the Woodbury School of Business provided scholarships to help him earn his Ph.D. He wanted to repay the assistance by helping other students earn their degrees. He established the Keith R. Mulbery Endowed Scholarship for Information Systems with a substantial gift.
“Because the information systems discipline is in high demand, I wanted to provide a scholarship for students to complete their IS degrees and go out into the workforce and contribute significantly to the field,” said Mulbery. “I wanted as many students to benefit from a scholarship as possible, and the best way to do that is to set up an endowed scholarship to generate interest to provide a scholarship indefinitely. These scholarships truly make a difference in students’ lives.” Mulbery hopes to make additional gifts in the future so that the fund ultimately provides two annual ongoing scholarships.
