Tim Larson appointed interim department chair

March 15, 2017

From the desk of Dean Mike Bragg:

I am pleased to announce the appointment of Professor Tim Larson as interim chair of the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, effective March 16, 2017.

Tim is uniquely qualified to lead the department through a chair transition, having served as acting chair for the department twice and as an associate chair.  A respected and longstanding faculty member, Tim is well versed in the administration of the department.  As most of you know, Tim holds an adjunct appointment in Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences, and his research focuses on air quality management, measurement methods for atmospheric aerosols, and precipitation scavenging.  I appreciate Tim’s commitment to the department and willingness to once again take on this important leadership role.  I know that CEE will benefit from Tim’s prior experience and his dedication to the mission and excellence of the department.

I would like to thank Greg Miller for his outstanding leadership as Chair of CEE for seven years. During his tenure as chair, Greg oversaw significant growth in faculty hiring, student demand and departmental stature. We are very grateful for his commitment and leadership and look forward to working with him in his new role as vice dean.  

Please join me in welcoming Tim as interim chair.  I look forward to working with Tim as we begin a search for the next CEE chair. 

Best regards,



Mike Bragg
