Faculty Assume Ag Leadership Roles

Two NDSU faculty members have been named to ag leadership positions.

The North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station and North Dakota State University’s College of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Natural Resources have appointed two faculty members to administrative positions.

Catherine Logue, associate professor in the Department of Veterinary and Microbiological Sciences, has agreed to accept a partial appointment as assistant director of the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station.

With her 30 percent appointment, Logue will be responsible for reviewing North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station and federal Hatch Act-funded project proposals and Current Research Information System reports. She takes over that role from Don Kirby, now the director of NDSU’s School of Natural Resource Sciences.

Dwain Meyer, professor in the Department of Plant Sciences, has agreed to serve as interim chair of the department. Meyer began his duties on Aug. 1 and will remain in the position until a national search for a permanent head is completed successfully.
