Re: New Dean of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences

I am pleased to announce the appointment of Thomas C. Vogelmann as the eleventh Dean of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. He will assume the appointment effective immediately. Dr. Vogelmann is currently the Interim Dean of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, a position he has held since July 1, 2008. He came to Vermont in 2002 as Professor of Plant Biology and Chair of the Department of Botany and Agricultural Biochemistry (later changed to the Department of Plant Biology).

A graduate of Syracuse University (Ph.D.), Washington State University (M.S.) and the University of Vermont (B.S.), Dr. Vogelmann worked for eighteen years at the University of Wyoming, where he attained the rank of Professor of Botany and served as the interim Chair of the Department of Botany. He also served as Visiting Professor at the University of Lund in Lund, Sweden, and Visiting Research Fellow at the Australian National University in Canberra, Australia.

Dr. Vogelmann has received numerous awards and other recognitions for his teaching, research, and service, including the Robertson Lecture for outstanding contributions to plant physiology conferred by the Australian and New Zealand Societies for Plant Physiology. He also received the Presidential Award for outstanding research, the College of Arts and Sciences Award for Outstanding Research, and the Elbogen Award for Outstanding Teaching, all at the University of Wyoming. Most recently, he received the Joseph E. Carrigan Award for Excellence in Teaching and Undergraduate Education in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at UVM. Dr. Vogelmann specializes in plant physiology and has published more than eighty scientific papers in refereed journals, books, and technical proceedings.

Dr. Vogelmann is an accomplished researcher, educator, and administrator. We are very much looking forward to his continued leadership of the College, which will be critical to our collective pursuit of the vision for the University of Vermont as one of the nation’s premier small research universities and as a global leader in environmental science and policy. On behalf of the University community, my thanks go to Dean Douglas Lantagne, who chaired the search committee, and to all of its members for their exemplary work.
