MANHATTAN, KANSAS, U.S. — Marc Johnson, dean of the Kansas State University College of Agriculture and director of K-State Research and Extension, has accepted a position as vice provost for agriculture and outreach and dean of the College of Agricultural Sciences at Colorado State University, beginning Aug. 1.
K-State President Jon Wefald said, "Dr. Marc Johnson is one of the truly great deans of agriculture that K-State has ever had. The College of Agriculture and K-State Research and Extension have all improved tremendously under Marc Johnson’s outstanding leadership. There is no question that he will be missed at K-State. And we wish him the very best in his new position."
At K-State, Johnson has been responsible for the administration of the teaching, research, extension and international programs in agriculture and related areas. He was named dean of agriculture in March 1994 after serving as interim dean since September 1992.
Previously he was head of K-State’s department of agricultural economics beginning in 1985.
