As you know, since our announcement on Feb. 8, we have been working with the departments in the College of Human Environmental Sciences (HES) to ensure that they transition into the colleges that are best suited to their disciplines and where they will continue to thrive. The faculty and leadership in these departments have carefully considered and made recommendations regarding their new homes. Their recommendations reflect their considerations of the best fit for research, instruction and programs, and service. In addition, as a land-grant institution, we must preserve and expand our service to the community and the state we serve. To this end, we have worked with Vice Chancellor Marshall Stewart to ensure that faculty who have responsibilities within the Extension area will succeed in their new locations.
