MSU announces reorganization of DAFVM leadership structure

STARKVILLE, Miss.—Mississippi State Vice President for the Division of Agriculture, Forestry and Veterinary Medicine Keith Coble and MSU Executive Vice President and Provost David R. Shaw on Thursday [April 8] announced changes in the organizational leadership structure of major components of the academic division.

“In evaluating the current and future leadership needs of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS), the College of Forest Resources (CFR), the Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station (MAFES), and the Forest and Wildlife Research Center (FWRC), it is clear that these vital entities require a different structure that provides greater focus and attention to mission,” said Coble. “Moving forward, both colleges deserve distinct leadership as do their affiliated research and service units. To that end, we are formally reorganizing the leadership structure to accommodate those needs.”
