The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences is in our final year of the most aggressive hiring phase in our history. It’s been a three-year push to bring in 90 new faculty members – almost a third of our faculty total. So far, we’ve hired 74 of the top talent in our state, nation and world.
Led by Dean Richard Linton, catalyzed by CALS Human Resources and strengthened by faculty and staff engagement in the recruitment process, this round of hiring has resulted in an extraordinary group of new talent in the college.
We want to hire the very best people, and doing that requires exceptional applicant pools for our positions. We thank the many people in the College who have invested time and energy to help us achieve our ambitious hiring goal.
Here are most of the new faces (we’re adding more all the time).
