  • ANDREW ROGERSON: Pick for UALR chancellor
Dr. Andrew Rogerson, currently provost of Sonoma State University in California, has been chosen by University of Arkansas System President Donald Bobbitt to be the next chancellor of UALR.

Chancellor Joel Anderson is retiring June 30 after 13 years as chancellor and 45 years at UALR.

The UA Board of Trustees will consider Bobbitt's choice next week. Rogerson's pay will be about $350,000 a year, a University spokesman said.

A native of Scotland, Rogerson's doctorate is in protozoan ecology. He's taught and been an administrator in England, Canada and the U.S.  Here's a full biography.

He was one of three finalists. The others were Cheryl Lovell of Colorado State University and Mark Rudin of Boise State University.

From a UA release:

“I feel very strongly about the role a metropolitan university like UALR should play within a community, a system, and a state … even regionally and nationally,” Rogerson said. “There’s a unique synergy that can be created when programs and research are interwoven into a growing community and economy, and my goal is to tap into that to help UALR reach its maximum potential. I am thankful for the hospitality and professionalism that’s been shown to me during this process by everyone involved, and I am eager to get to Little Rock and get to work.”

Rogerson’s selection ends an eight-month process led by a search committee established by Bobbitt and supported by Greenwood/Asher & Associates Inc., a leading executive search and consulting firm. The search committee, chaired by Bob Denman, former vice chancellor for advancement at UALR, included a diverse group representing the UA Board of Trustees, university faculty and staff, and the private business sector.
