Stephen Douglas Nadauld (born May 31, 1942) is an American academic, the president of Dixie State University and former president of Weber State University. Nadauld was also a general authority of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) from 1991 to 1996.

Nadauld was born in Idaho Falls, Idaho. From 1961 to 1964, Nadauld was an LDS Church missionary in France, where he became a fluent speaker of French.

Nadauld obtained a chemistry degree from Brigham Young University (BYU), an MBA from Harvard Business School, and a Ph.D. in finance from the University of California at Berkeley. Nadauld has been a faculty member at the University of Utah (1970–1972) and the University of California at Berkeley (1973–1976). In 1976, he became a faculty member at BYU, where he eventually became the head of the school's MBA program. In 1983, he left BYU for different private sector opportunities, including a period of time as the CEO of a dairy cooperative and CFO of Bonneville Pacific Corporation. He was also president of Weber State University in Ogden, Utah for five years. During his tenure he was instrumental in Weber's State's preparations to become a state university in Utah. In 1991, Nadauld was awarded an honorary doctorate degree from Weber State.

In 1991, Nadauld became a member of the LDS Church's Second Quorum of the Seventy, a full-time ecclesiastical appointment. For the entirety of his tenure as a general authority, Nadauld was a counselor to Jack H. Goaslind in the general presidency of the church's Young Men organization. He served in this capacity until 1996, when he again returned to BYU as a professor of business management. From 2003 to 2006, Nadauld took a leave of absence from BYU to serve as president of the church's Switzerland Geneva Mission. Following this service, Nadauld returned as a faculty member at BYU.

On March 22, 2010, Nadauld was inaugurated as the 17th president of Dixie State College in St. George, Utah[1] after serving since March 27, 2008 as its interim president.[2] He will retire at the end of the 2013-2014 academic year.[3]

Nadauld is the author of two books on spiritual LDS Church-related themes. He is married to Margaret Dyreng, who was the general president of the LDS Church's Young Women organization from 1997 to 2002. They are the parents of seven sons.[4][5]
