Bobby D. Moser, vice president for Agricultural Administration and dean of the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES), said he would step down as dean once his replacement is found. He has agreed to stay on during a transitional period to assist a new dean and will be accepting some new assignments once the search is completed.
As vice president for agricultural administration, Moser oversees the college, Ohio State University Extension, the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center (OARDC), and the Agricultural Technical Institute (ATI). This includes 1,900 faculty and staff, 3,200 students, and an annual budget of $195 million.
Moser has served as vice president and dean at CFAES for nearly 20 years. He is also executive dean of the university’s professional colleges and served as vice president for university outreach from 2001 to 2008.
