Dean of the College of Agricultural Sciences

Colorado State University


Colorado State University (CSU) invites nominations and applications for the position of Dean of the College of Agricultural Sciences (CAS). This position also carries the title and responsibilities of Director of the Colorado Agricultural Experiment Station (CAES).

Colorado State University is a Carnegie Doctoral/Research University-Extensive land-grant institution committed to excellence in research, teaching and public engagement. The University seeks a visionary and transformational leader dedicated to enhancing and strengthening the mission of the College to further its commitment to excellence in research, teaching, outreach and global engagement programs.

The State of Colorado is currently poised to be a leader in agriculture higher education. The Dean is expected to represent CSU as a flagship university in agriculture innovation. As part of its Land Grant University heritage, it is expected that the Dean, in collaboration with the College faculty, will develop the connections and vision for the future of agriculture-related research and training. The Dean will be pivotal in strengthening the College and University’s reputation as a national and international leader in many areas related to food, energy, sustainability, environmental protection, human and community development, among others. The Dean will provide leadership for building and enhancing strategic partnerships and collaborations with units across campus and multiple key external stakeholders. As the chief advocate and spokesperson for the College, both on campus and with external partners and stakeholders, the Dean will articulate, champion and communicate the strategic vision and key priorities of the College of Agricultural Sciences, emphasize, nurture and foster the diverse and multi-faceted contributions of all faculty, staff, and students, and also, engage with both value added agriculture enterprises as well as traditional agriculture production groups. The Dean’s office is the focal point of connecting University expertise/research with application to the Agriculture industry.

The College of Agricultural Sciences encompasses five departments: Agricultural and Resource Economics, Animal Sciences, Bioagricultural Sciences and Pest Management, Horticulture and Landscape Architecture, and Soil and Crop Sciences. Approximately 1,362 students pursue undergraduate degrees through nine fields of study offered by the five departments. An additional 248 students pursue MS and PhD level education under the direction of college faculty. Three of the 16 University Distinguished Professors and one of the 12 University Distinguished Teaching Scholars hold faculty appointments in the College. The Center for Meat Safety and Quality, and the Wheat Research, Outreach and Education Program are designated as two University Programs of Research and Scholarly Excellence. The College’s Strategic Plan and Strategic Initiatives can be found at: http://home.agsci.colostate.edu/strategic-plan/ and http://home.agsci.colostate.edu/strategic-initiatives/.

As the chief academic and executive officer of the College, the Dean has the primary responsibility for faculty and academic professional staff development, budgetary oversight and planning, academic and curricular issues, constituent engagement, fundraising, and facilities development. In addition, this position provides state-wide and campus-level leadership to the Colorado Agriculture Experiment Station (CAES). The Dean of CAS is responsible for an annual appropriated base budget allocation in fiscal year 2014-2015 of $7.5 million for resident instruction (before differential tuition), $8.3 million for the CAES, and $1.9 million for Extension and Outreach. For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2014, faculty research efforts for the College generated grant and contract resources of nearly $11.8 million, and other self-funded activities produced $6.2 million, $3.4 million in gifts, and $1.7 million from indirect cost recoveries The annualized, total combined financial portfolio for CAS/CAES is just over $40 million.

The Colorado Agricultural Experiment Station (CAES) administers projects which are implemented across 15 academic departments within seven of the eight colleges at CSU, and within eight research centers (seven in Colorado and one in Wyoming). The mission is to conduct, foster and support relevant research which generally addresses five national goals: to be highly competitive in the global economy, provide safe and secure food and fiber systems, ensure a healthy, well-nourished population, increase harmony between agriculture and the environment, and enhance economic opportunity and quality of life for Americans.

THE UNIVERSITY

Northern Michigan University has a population of about 9,000 undergraduate and graduate students. NMU is one of three Michigan public universities to also serve a community college role for its region. This means the breadth of the university’s academic programs range from certificates to graduate degrees, including its first doctoral program – the Doctor of Nursing Practice – which began in the fall of 2014. Many programs boast a 90 percent placement rate or higher for their students. Also, nearly 100 percent of predental students who apply to dental school are accepted and approximately 80 percent of premedical students who apply to medical school are accepted. Some of the academic programs to receive national or international recognition in the past three years have been Art and Design, Business, Computer Science, Education, English, Environmental Studies, Native American Studies, and Nursing.

The university provides outstanding personal attention to students. More than 75 percent of NMU's 300-plus full-time faculty members have doctorates or the highest degree in their fields, and a hallmark of the NMU experience is that many full-time faculty members teach at all levels – from first-year through graduate courses. Faculty engage a significant number of undergraduate and graduate students in research activities through the McNair Program and other opportunities. The university also has a First Year Experience Program, Honors Program, Freshman Fellows Program, and study abroad opportunities to enhance the academic experience for students. For NMU’s 1,100 employees, helping students succeed is both a university priority and a personal goal.

Northern Michigan University has two highly acclaimed leadership programs: the Student Leader Fellowship Program (SLFP) and Superior Edge. The SLFP, which has been in existence for more than 20 years, is a highly selective, two-year leadership experience for 50 selected students each year. The Superior Edge program is open to all NMU students and has nearly a third of the student population participating in the program’s four edges: citizenship, diversity awareness, leadership and real-world application of classroom theory.

NMU’s efforts in service learning, an active volunteer center that does extensive outreach throughout Michigan’s Upper Peninsula region, and about 300 student organizations combine to make the campus a place where community involvement is a natural component of the student experience. The university was selected as the recipient of the 2013 Engaged Campus of the Year Award from Michigan Campus Compact. NMU is one of about 300 colleges and universities nationwide to have the Carnegie Foundation’s "community-engaged campus” designation.

THE COMMUNITY AND CAMPUS

NMU’s hometown of Marquette is a city of approximately 21,000 residents located along the southern shore of Lake Superior. Michigan’s Upper Peninsula region is known for its safe, friendly and natural environment. Marquette enjoys four distinct seasons, which are celebrated by a wide variety of festivals and activities throughout the year, and a diverse range of outdoors activities. Marquette also boasts a thriving arts and culture scene, an award-winning public library, and an impressive array of local and organic food options. Also, the people of the Upper Peninsula include vibrant Anishinaabe communities and descendants of Finnish immigrants who possess a rich and varied cultural heritage. The Marquette community and Northern Michigan University are intricately intertwined, which adds to the vitality of the area and to the opportunities available to NMU students.

The university’s 360-acre campus is home to over 50 structures, including the newly renovated Jamrich Hall; the Seaborg Science Complex, with more than two dozen laboratories; the School of Art and Design building, featuring the DeVos Art Museum; an award-winning library; multiple theatres for live performances; and an extensive sports and recreation complex.
