CORVALLIS, Ore. – Two new administrators have been named to the College of Agricultural Sciences at Oregon State University.
Daniel Edge, head of OSU’s Department of Fisheries and Wildlife Science, will serve as the college’s associate dean beginning Feb. 1. Sam Angima, regional administrator for OSU Extension on the north coast, will become the college’s assistant dean for outreach and engagement beginning March 1.
Edge replaces Stella Coakley, who is retiring after 26 years in the college, first as head of the Department of Botany and Plant Pathology and, since 2004 as associate dean.
“Dan Edge is an experienced leader, who has guided the department of fisheries and wildlife through an impressive period of growth in distance learning, graduate education, and advancement of diversity,” said Dan Arp, dean of OSU’s College of Agricultural Sciences. “Under his leadership, the department is now recognized as one of the very best in the nation.”
Edge has chaired the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission and is president of OSU’s Faculty Senate.
Angima replaces Bill Braunworth and Mike Borman, who consecutively served as program leader for OSU’s Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources Extension Program. His new position will bridge OSU’s College of Agricultural Sciences and the Division of Outreach and Engagement.
“Sam Angima continues to show his acuity and enthusiasm for outreach and engagement work,” said Scott Reed, OSU’s vice-provost for Outreach and Engagement. “As a faculty member and leader, he understands the value of applying knowledge in ways that honor partnerships and are focused on measurable results.”
Originally from Kenya, Angima joined the OSU faculty in 2006. Angima chaired the OSU Extension office in Lincoln County, where he coordinated small farms, forestry and Master Gardener programs.
