University of Nevada, Reno has launched a nationwide recruitment for the new Dean/Director of CABNR/Nevada Agricultural Experiment Station. The selection of a new Dean/Director is a critical step for UNR as it will help articulate a vision and set a tone as CABNR/NAES moves forward.  It is particularly important to find inspired leadership as we face new opportunities and challenges brought on by changes in the community health and wellbeing, natural resource sustainability, statewide economic development, and the academic environments.

The Search Committee is comprised of diverse members of our community with experience and skills in the multiple areas for which this candidate is responsible.  This will help identify outstanding finalist candidates, so that a strong and effective new leader is selected for the College and Ag Experiment Station.  This committee will conduct a diligent, wide-ranging search seeking to develop a rich pool of diverse, accomplished candidates and we are confident that this process will lead to a highly successful outcome.

The three academic departments administer eleven B.S. degree programs with a cumulative enrollment of over 1,000 undergraduates and support graduate students in departmental and interdisciplinary graduate programs.
