By Tobias Hunter/Clarion News

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY- According to an article on the Lincoln University website, Douglas LaVergne, who has a doctorate in agricultural education, has been hired as the new dean of the College of Agriculture, Environmental and Human sciences. President John B. Moseley of Lincoln University is excited to add LaVergne to our school’s roster.

“We are excited to add Dr. LaVergne to our leadership team,” Moseley says, “As a land-grant institution with a particular interest in empowering underserved populations, Lincoln possesses great potential and responsibility for ag education, innovation, and research. Dr. LaVergne is filling a key position as CAEHS dean, and his education and experience will well serve our students and overall mission.”

LaVergne will be acting as the chief academic officer of the college. This means he will oversee:

  • The management of resources.
  • The development and fundraising efforts.
  • And the recruitment and retention of faculty, staff, and students.

LaVergne will be starting at his new position on April 1, 2023. With his experience as an associate dean of Texas A&M, we are looking forward to seeing how he handles his new position here at Lincoln University.

“It is a tremendous honor to be named dean of the College of Agriculture, Environmental and Human Sciences,” LaVergne says, “I am humbled by the opportunity to serve in this role and, in turn, to contribute further to the legacy that Lincoln University has embodied since 1866.”
