CALS Research, NCSU's insight:

Listening, Learning, Leading, new #CALS Dean, Dr. Richard Linton, hits the ground running to learn about the College, #NCSU and NC.

 

The Dean has been traversing the state to meet alumni, stakeholders and partners since he arrived a few months ago.

 

“You’ve got to listen & learn before you can lead," he says; "and I think leadership is about providing opportunities, providing opportunities for faculty and staff and students on campus and providing opportunities for us to grow as a state in agriculture and life sciences. And that’s what I think my job should be all about.”
