To: Oregon State Colleagues

From: Edward Feser, Provost and Executive Vice President

Dear Oregon State Colleagues:

I am pleased to announce that Professor Anthony Davis has agreed to serve as Interim Dean of the College of Forestry and Interim Director of the Oregon Forest Research Laboratory, effective immediately.

Working with colleagues in the College of Forestry and with external colleagues and partners, Anthony will continue to advance the college’s progress toward its goals, including the completion of the Forest Science Complex. Anthony’s interim appointment follows several months in the acting dean role and previous appointments as executive associate dean and associate dean for research at Oregon State and director of the Center for Forest Nursery and Seedling Research at the University of Idaho.

Anthony’s interim role will remain in effect until a new dean is appointed. My office has begun preparatory work to launch a national search for a permanent dean early in 2019.

Please join me in thanking Anthony for continuing to provide leadership for the College of Forestry.

Edward Feser
Provost and Executive Vice President
