OSU-Cascades has named a new chancellor and dean.
Sherman Bloomer, formerly the associate vice president of budget and resource planning, will step into the role on May 1.
He previously held positions at Boston and Duke universities before joining OSU in 1995.
“The goal remains bringing 3000 to 5000 students to the campus in central Oregon. That means that we’re working to build out academic programs, to hire faculty and most of all, to build the physical space to let those people do their work. We’re going to be at it for a lot of years. There’s a plan laid out,” he says.
Bloomer has participated in more than 50 peer-reviewed articles and been supported by more than $1 million in grant money.
OSU’s provost says Bloomer’s record in university leadership makes him highly qualified for the role.
