Stephen Douglas Nadauld (born May 31, 1942) is an American academic, the former president of Dixie State University and Weber State University. Nadauld was a general authority of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) from 1991 to 1996.
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 (1970–72) and the University of California at Berkeley (1973–76). 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, Nadauld was instrumental in Webers 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, after serving since March 27, 2008, as its interim president. He retired at the end of the 2013–14 academic year.
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.
