Purdue's Agriculture Dean Named Provost

Purdue University has named William "Randy" Woodson as its new provost.

Woodson was one of three candidates who visited the Purdue earlier this month. He is the dean of Purdue's College of Agriculture.

Woodson will take over the job May 1 from Vic Lechtenberg, who has been interim provost since Sally Mason left the post last year to become president of the University of Iowa.

“What pointed me to the position was an interest in continuing to keep Purdue as a very strong academic institution, but also an institution that is responsive to the needs of the state,” said Woodson.

Congratulations to another great public university.
