John Shutske, who has been serving as the interim provost and vice chancellor at UW- Extension since Feb. 17, will return to his role as associate dean for extension and outreach on Feb. 1, 2015. Brian Holmes, an emeritus professor of biological systems engineering, will remain in the interim associate dean role until Shutske returns.
“We are pleased to welcome John back,” said CALS Dean Kate VandenBosch. “I know he learned a great deal as provost at UW-Extension and we look forward to him sharing those experiences with us. I also want to take the opportunity to thank Brian Holmes for his service during the past year.” Holmes will resume his retirement after Feb. 1.
