Sewell to serve in Research and Economic Development for interim period

Feb. 11, 2013

Dear UNT community,

As you know, our national search for a permanent Vice President for Research and Economic Development is underway; a search committee chaired by College of Arts and Sciences Dean Art Goven is leading the effort. As part of their service, search committee members also recently reviewed letters of application submitted by UNT faculty members who sought to serve as the vice president of this division during the period of the national search.

Kenneth Sewell, Office of Research and Economic DevelopmentI’m pleased to announce that I’ve accepted the recommendation of the search committee to appoint Dr. Kenneth Sewell, right, as the Vice President for Research and Economic Development during this interim period. Dr. Sewell will be responsible for leading a substantial body of work in the months ahead as we navigate this legislative session and our request for tuition revenue bonds for a new research building, prepare for upcoming university budget hearings, and ensure advancements in the university’s high performance computing facilities.

Dr. Sewell’s experience as the division’s associate vice president for the past five years and his commitment to strengthening the division’s operational effectiveness and support for all forms of research and scholarly activities at UNT will ensure that we continue to advance the research success of our students and faculty members.

Dr. Geoff Gamble agreed to a temporary assignment as Vice President for Research and Economic Development and successfully filled that assignment. As previously agreed, Dr. Gamble is — at his request — vacating the position and moving to a part-time role at UNT. In this role, he will work directly with the president in strategy and operations, tying our budget more closely to our four bold goals.

As always, thank you for your work to ensure the success of our students and for all you do to help our great university advance.

President V. Lane RawlinsSincerely,

V. Lane Rawlins

UNT President
