At UW-RF, he earned a bachelor's degree in secondary education. While pursuing an M.S.E. in supervision and instructional leadership, he also spent two years as an assistant coach for the Falcon football team.

As registrar, Vande Yacht will be responsible for expanding online services, enrollment strategies, registration, and graduation clearance as well as managing student records, supervising registration, generating course schedules and supervising eligibility certification for intercollegiate athletes.
