Congratulations Doug Taylor

May 7, 2022

Doug Taylor has accepted the position as the interim Chair of Biology starting July 1. He came highly recommended from the on-line survey and is widely respected for his leadership in the department. We look forward to working with him as faculty move from temporary research and teaching space and can develop long-term vision for how the department can grow and flourish.  

I want to reiterate Dave Hill’s previous appreciation for Debbie Roach’s leadership through the pandemic and the Gilmer renovation, as well as her advocacy for the research and teaching missions of Biology for the past two and a half years.
