James Pritchett, CSU’s current dean of the College of Agricultural Sciences and director of the Agricultural Experiment Station, will serve as the university’s next vice president for Engagement and Extension, beginning Jan. 1, 2024.
The appointment taps a seasoned university leader with lifelong ties to rural Colorado communities, signaling a continued and elevated commitment to the state, according to Parsons.
“As a proven leader with extensive expertise and a strong network of internal and external relationships across the state, James is exactly the person we need to move this priority area forward for CSU and Colorado,” Parsons said.
Pritchett has served CSU in many leadership roles including in his current role as dean, assistant vice president for Engagement and executive associate dean for the College of Agricultural Sciences. He joined the College of Agricultural Sciences faculty in 2001.
