LSU promotes Boethel to vice chancellor

DAVID J. BOETHEL, associate vice chancellor at the LSU AgCenter, has been promoted to vice chancellor for research and director of the Louisiana Agricultural Experiment Station and will begin his new duties April 19.

“He brings a strong research background to this job plus classroom teaching experience and a record of leadership in our Extension and outreach program,” said William B. Richardson, LSU AgCenter chancellor.

Boethel, who has been with the AgCenter for nearly 30 years, has been in his current position since 2001. He was promoted to assistant director in 1997 and has continued his appointment as a professor of entomology.

Boethel has received international recognition for this research on insect pest management. More recently, he has led efforts to stop the spread of the Formosan subterranean termite and red imported fire ant in Louisiana and to expand mosquito abatement to help tackle the threat of West Nile virus.
