An MSU alumnus, he also will serve as the college's liaison with community colleges.

"Robert Green has worked with undergraduate students for several years and has deep concern for their welfare," said engineering Dean A. Wayne Bennett. "We are very pleased that he has accepted this new challenge."

Bill Smyer, associate engineering dean for undergraduate affairs, said Green brings valuable leadership skills and professional contacts to the position.

"His service in professional organizations has provided a background that will benefit our students as they prepare to enter the workforce or graduate school," Smyer said.
