Mike Mullen, who earned a doctorate in soil science at NC State in 1987, is returning to the university as the new vice chancellor and dean of the Division of Academic and Student Affairs.

Mullen, who begins work at NC State in August, replaces Thomas H. Stafford Jr. ’66 MS, who is retiring as vice chancellor of student affairs after 29 years in the position.

Mullen currently works at the University of Kentucky, where he is the associate provost for the Division of Undergraduate Education and dean of undergraduate studies.

Provost Warwick Arden announced Mullen’s hiring, saying he has “considerable expertise, skill and a passion for student success.”
