University Names New Associate Vice President for Economic Development
The Colorado State University System has appointed a new Associate Vice President for Economic Development who will help connect industry with University programs and research.
Huntington Lambert, currently director of Colorado State University's Center for Entrepreneurship, will lead Colorado State's newly created Office of Economic Development. As Associate Vice President, he will coordinate activities related to technology transfer, startup companies, workforce development, the growth of educational products for the private sector and public policy aspects of economic development among many departments at the University and the Colorado State University Research Foundation.
Lambert will report to Senior Vice President and Provost Tony Frank until the new Vice Provost for Outreach and Strategic Partnerships, a new position announced last week as part of a university-wide restructuring, is hired. Lambert's duties will include helping build on the University's "superclusters", which the University defines as coordinated multidisciplinary efforts among scholars with interests in common global problems. The emerging multidisciplinary superclusters on campus include biomedicine/infectious diseases; information science and technology; food, nutrition, health and well-being; and environmental sustainability.
