University of Utah Provost Mitzi M. Montoya announced that Charles Bruce Musgrave has accepted an offer to serve as dean of the John and Marcia Price College of Engineering. Musgrave is a professor of chemical and biochemical engineering and associate dean for graduate education over the College of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He will begin his new role on July 1, 2024.


While at the University of Colorado, Musgrave served as chair of the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, with a joint appointment at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory with the Department of Energy in Golden, Colo. He is a fellow of the Materials Science and Engineering Program and Renewable and Sustainable Energy Institute at the University of Colorado. Before his nearly 16 years in Colorado, Musgrave served as an assistant professor of chemical engineering at Stanford University, and as a visiting professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard University. He was a collaborator with Intel Corporation, SC Solutions Corporation, General Motors Corporation and Xerox Corporation, among others. Along with his notable achievements, Musgrave brings a unique perspective to his leadership role as a first-generation student and son of an immigrant.

“The John and Marcia Price College of Engineering has a rich heritage of making history through its innovative research by forging paths into the unknown and inventing the future,” Montoya said. “I am excited to work with Dr. Musgrave as he leads this prestigious college in teaching our next generation of engineers and problem-solvers who will impact our world for the better.”
