W. Andrew Marcus selected as UO College of Arts and Sciences dean

The number of deans yet to be announced has been reduced by one this morning.

Dr. W. Andrew Marcus was named the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences by Provost Scott Coltrane in an email this morning.

Marcus has served at the UO for the past 15 years and has been the interim Tykeson Dean of Arts and Sciences since 2013. From 2008-11 he served as the head of the Department of Geography.

While in his new role, Marcus will continue his research, “focusing on the human impacts on rivers and the use of remote sensing technology to map and understand rivers,” according to Coltrane’s email.

Last month, Marcus earned the Career Development Champion of the Year award for his “collaboration, support and contribution to the career development of UO students and alumni.”

Coltrane says Marcus’ dedicated team will allow him to “devote more and more time to advancing the visibility of CAS, especially among alumni and donors.”
