BU recruits new dean from New Mexico

Brandon University has a new dean of science.

Andrew Egan is coming to Brandon from New Mexico Highlands University, where he is currently executive director of the New Mexico Forest and Watershed Restoration Institute.

"I am very excited to be joining the Brandon University community and honoured to have been chosen to be the next dean of its faculty of science," Egan said. "Important to me is BU’s diverse student population and commitment to student-centered, liberal education, forming the foundation for the development of broadly educated professionals, citizens, and leaders."

Egan holds a Ph.D. in Forest Science from Pennsylvania State University and previously served as dean of the School of Forestry and Natural Resources at Paul Smith’s College in New York and as a professor and Canada Industrial Chair designee at Université Laval in Québec. He is the recipient of several awards for teaching and research excellence, including a Senior Fulbright Scholarship in 2004.  He has also led the development of a number of new academic programs and has published over 100 papers and book chapters.

As a member of the senior leadership team, Egan will oversee the faculty of science which is comprised of eight departments and serves more than 600 undergraduate students. He will contribute to the development, implementation and promotion of institutional goals including academic programming and research advancement.

Egan will begin at BU on June 1.
