Former Montana State president named to interim position

Geoff Gamble, interim senior vice provost 2011Geoffrey L. Gamble, right, former president of Montana State University, has been named interim senior vice provost effective Aug. 1.

“Geoff Gamble has an outstanding record, including Montana State’s achievement of a Very High Research Activity by the Carnegie Foundation,” said Warren Burggren, provost and vice president for academic affairs. “Though smaller than UNT, under Geoff’s leadership Montana State surpassed $100 million in research expenditures in 2005 and has continued to build its research and academic programs to the point where Montana State is nationally known for its undergraduate programs.

“UNT’s goal is to provide among the best undergraduate degree programs in Texas while also building our research portfolio. Geoff Gamble’s expertise and experience will be an outstanding resource to help guide out academic programs,” Burggren said.

Gamble’s new role will include strategic planning and review, said Burggren. “In addition to being the senior staff member in the Office of the Provost, Geoff will be tasked with a series of important signature projects, rather than having a fixed set of duties,” Burggren said. “For example, he will lead a team looking at our procedures and policies relating to institutes and centers, and will advise the Provost’s senior staff on a variety of faculty-related topics based on his highly successful years at Montana State. These are a number of critical initiatives for our university brewing at the moment, and Geoff’s timely guidance will be fundamental to their success.”

During the past 10 years, Montana State has had:

  • 53 Goldwater Scholars – ranked in top 12 in nation
  • 83 percent placement rate of students into medical schools
  • 90 percent scores on national the engineering exam among all students taking the exam
  • 90 percent score on the nursing exam with a 100 percent pass rate on the Nurse Practitioner exam
  • consistent ratings in the top 10 universities on the national accountancy exam.

Gamble, who retired in 2009, currently is president emeritus and professor emeritus at Montana State, previously served as provost and senior vice president at the University of Vermont and vice provost for academic affairs at Washington State University. He holds a doctorate in linguistics from the University of California, Berkeley. Gamble is the author of two books and a dozen articles about Native American languages.
