USU President George Emert said, "Fred brings a special talent for the technical aspects of that office, as well as a genuine love and understanding of both USU and its interactions with the community."
Hunsaker's responsibilities will include financial, facilities, business and administrative functions and athletics.
Emert has also designated Paul Norton, USU vice president for university relations and development, as special executive assistant to the president and announced two new administrative positions: vice president for alumni and development, and executive director for media and marketing.
