Texas Tech's College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources faculty and staff, along with friends across campus, gathered on Monday (Apr. 9) at the university's International Cultural Center to welcome a new dean. William "Bill" Brown took the reins to CASNR at the beginning of April. Welcoming Brown to the High Plains campus were Texas Tech Provost Michael Galyean and Robert Duncan, Chancellor of the Texas Tech University System.
Brown comes to Texas Tech after serving as dean for research and director of the Agricultural Experiment Station at the Institute of Agriculture at the University of Tennessee. His office provided support and oversight to all research activities within the UTIA while coordinating with academic programs and extension within seven academic departments.
As director of the UTIA, Brown was responsible for overseeing approximately 170 faculty members and 10 AgResearch and Education Centers across Tennessee, helping facilitate research collaborations with University of Tennessee colleges of engineering and arts & sciences. Brown earned his bachelor's degree from the University of Florida and master's degree from the University of Tennessee. His doctorate is from the University of Nebraska.
Separately, CASNR officials expressed gratitude for the support of the reception's sponsors. They included PhytoGen Cotton seed; FiberMax Cotton; Texas Peanut Producers; Netafim; CEV; and Republic National Distributing Co.
