Blinn Names Brick to New VP Position
The Blinn College Board of Trustees approved longtime Bryan campus natural sciences division chair Dr. Bob Brick as vice president of applied sciences, a newly created position intended to place more emphasis on technical and workforce education programs.
"Blinn College is already a leader in academic transfer. Elevating applied sciences to the vice presidential level and appointing a VP with outstanding credentials demonstrates the administration's commitment to a more comprehensive college," Blinn President Dr. Dan Holt said.
Dr. Brick will draw on his extensive experience in science education and research, as well as being an advisor to government and industry, to work with community leaders to determine what current Blinn programs should be expanded and what new areas should be explored.
"I look forward to the opportunity of continuing Blinn's strong tradition through its health and technical education programs and to expanding its role in the new field of biotechnical training," Brick said.
The new division will be headquartered in Bryan/College Station where the greatest opportunities appear in the areas of biotechnology and allied health. Discussions with city, county, hospital, and Texas A&M University System officials are underway to articulate the vision for this new initiative and building partnerships to further Blinn's mission.
