Dr. Hudson Rogers will be VSU’s next provost and vice president for academic affairs.
Rogers will come from Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers, where he was dean of the Lutgert College of Business.
“After a thorough and competitive national search, Dr. Rogers quickly rose to the top and was the clear and unambiguous first choice of our search committee, and our campus community,” VSU President Dr. William McKinney said in an email Monday.
“Hudson will bring a rare academic perspective that combines a commitment to both liberal and professional education, a pioneering and entrepreneurial spirit, and a keen business sense to the Office of Academic Affairs,” Dr. McKinney said.
Rogers’ first day on the job will be July 1.
