President’s Cabinet and Provost Council members,

I am pleased to announce that I have appointed Dr. Roy Haggerty as Associate Vice President for Research. His appointment will become effective on August 30, 2016.

Roy Haggerty

Dr. Haggerty is currently the interim Dean of the College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences and the Hollis M. Dole Professor of Environmental Geology at OSU. Roy has been on our faculty since 1996 and served as head of the geology program from 2003-2006. He is a highly regarded hydrologist with expertise in nutrient and energy flow in streams, and the movement of contaminants in groundwater. He graduated from the University of Alberta and holds graduate degrees in hydrology from Stanford University.

Dr. Haggerty takes on the position of Associate Vice President following Dr. Rich Holdren’s retirement on June 30, 2016. I would like to thank Rich for his vital role in shaping the success of the Office of Research over the past sixteen years.

Please join me in welcoming Roy to his new position in the Research Office.


Cynthia Sagers
