Executive associate dean named for Texas A&M College of Agriculture and Life Sciences


Dr. Alan Sams will return to Texas A&M University to become executive associate dean of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences by Sept. 1, according to a June 9 announcement by Dr. Mark Hussey, vice chancellor and dean for Agriculture and Life Sciences.

Sams has been dean of Agriculture, Forestry and Life Sciences at Clemson University in South Carolina for the past two years. Prior to that appointment, he pursued a 20-year career at Texas A&M, rising from assistant professor in poultry science in 1987 to professor in 1999 and head of the poultry science department.

"Dr. Sams brings to his new position an extensive portfolio of experience in administration, teaching and research," Hussey said. Sams will provide day-to-day oversight and operational guidance for the College, he added, along with coordinating with the university and the agriculture agencies on academic, budgeting and programmatic efforts.

While at Texas A&M, Sams served as interim head during the successful launch of the new department of nutrition and food sciences, Hussey noted. Sams also "helped build vibrant international programs and outreach in the department of poultry science," he said, including leading numerous study-abroad programs and organizing an annual international poultry conference in Mexico over a span of eight years.

Sams earned a bachelor's degree in poultry science and food and resource economics in 1982, a master's degree in poultry science in 1984, and a doctorate in food science and human nutrition in 1987. All are from the University of Florida.
