Colorado State University President Amy Parsons has announced that Cassandra Moseley has been appointed as CSU’s next vice president for research, beginning Jan. 8. The appointment follows a six-month nationwide search. Moseley has served for more than 20 years as an accomplished administrator and research professor at the University of Oregon.
“Colorado State University continues to see record-breaking numbers in sponsored project expenditures, totaling $498 million in the last fiscal year,” said Parsons. “With Dr. Moseley’s strategic leadership and outstanding track record of campus collaboration, we can look forward to the continued expansion of CSU’s research portfolio and to the advancement of the university as a top-tier research institution.”
As vice president for research at CSU, Moseley will oversee the university’s research, discovery and creative artistry portfolio. She will work in partnership with the president, provost, deans, vice presidents and the campus community to advance the university’s reputation as an internationally recognized R1 institution. Moseley will report directly to the provost and executive vice president position, and she will serve as a member of cabinet and the executive leadership team.
“I am absolutely thrilled to be joining Colorado State as the next vice president for research,” said Moseley. “I am so looking forward to working with the campus community to develop initiatives that advance this fantastic university’s research and innovation goals.”
