From Kathryn J. Boor, PhD, The Ronald P. Lynch Dean, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences:

I am pleased to announce that Susan Brown, currently associate chair of the Department of Horticulture and Herman M. Cohn Professor of Agriculture and Life Sciences, has been named associate director of the New York Agricultural Experiment Station (NYSAES), effective July 1.

As associate director, Brown will work with Tom Burr, CALS associate dean and Goichman Family director of the NYSAES, and assistant director Marc Smith on developing a strategic plan for NYSAES to remain an engine of agricultural innovation and economic development in the upstate New York economy. In addition, they will collaborate on major initiatives including working with stakeholders to secure funding for applied research at NYSAES and its satellite campuses including the Hudson Valley Laboratory and the Cornell Lake Erie Research and Extension Laboratory.

Dr. Brown offers a unique and essential mix of highly respected scientific expertise; a background of forward thinking administrative leadership; and a deep commitment to the critical work being done at NYSAES in applied research, extension, and education. She has been a member of the faculty since 1985.

I echo Tom’s sentiments that “New York’s food and agriculture sectors are facing critical challenges, and to have someone of Susan’s caliber helping to direct the Station’s role in meeting them is fortunate for us all.”

In collaboration with the Horticulture Department, CALS leadership will identify and name an associate chair to succeed Dr. Brown in that departmental role.

Please join me in welcoming Susan into this new role.

Thank you,
Kathryn J. Boor
