Acting president


Dan Bernardo, Washington State University acting president, was named interim provost and executive vice president at WSU in June 2013, a post that became permanent in May 2014.

Before that he was vice president of agriculture and extension and served as the dean of the College of Agricultural, Human and Natural Resource Sciences at WSU from 2005 to 2013.

He holds a doctorate in agricultural economics from WSU and a bachelor’s degree in agricultural and managerial economics from the University of California, Davis. Before arriving at WSU, he taught at Kansas State University from 1995 to 2005 and Oklahoma State University from 1985 to 1995.

WSU regents are expected to decide in the next few weeks if Bernardo will be named interim president.
