SUBJECT: Campus  Visit by Candidate for Senior Vice President for Research


I am pleased to announce that following an extensive national search, the Search Advisory Committee has invited several candidates for the position of Senior Vice President for Research to Tucson for campus visits. An integral part of these visits is the opportunity for the campus community to engage with the candidates and I encourage you to take part.

The first candidate to visit will be Dr. Ingrid C. Burke, on Monday, March 3rd, and an open forum will be held that afternoon from 2:00 – 3:15 pm in the Student Union Tucson Room.

Dr. Burke is currently the director of the Helga Otto Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources at the University of Wyoming. She is also the Wyoming Excellence Chair of Ecology and Professor in both the Department of Botany and the Department of Ecosystem Science and Management. In her role as Director of the Haub School, Dr. Burke oversees all academic programs and two research application and outreach institutes housed within the School. 

Prior to her tenure at the University of Wyoming, Dr. Burke was Co-Director of the Graduate Degree Program in Ecology and University Distinguished Teaching Scholar and Professor in the Department of Forest, Rangeland, and Watershed Stewardship at Colorado State University. She holds a Ph.D. in Botany from the University of Wyoming and a B.S. in Biology from Middlebury College.

I hope that many of you are able to attend the open forum with Dr. Burke, and I look forward to the outcome of her visit and those to follow, which will be announced in the coming weeks.
