Russell Brewer takes helm at Office of Sponsored Research

RUSSELL BREWER has been promoted to associate vice president of the Office of Sponsored Research (OSR).  The appointment was effective Monday. Brewer will report to RANDY LIVINGSTON, vice president for business affairs and chief financial officer, and to ANN ARVIN, vice provost and dean of research.

“In his leadership of OSR, Russell will seek to balance strong service to faculty and research staff while ensuring oversight for grant management compliance with university policies and sponsor requirements,” Livingston said in an email announcement.

Brewer has more than 20 years of experience in research administration, including several years at Baylor University and Texas A&M.

He succeeds BARBARA COLE, who left Stanford last Friday for the University of Miami, where she will serve as associate vice president for research administration.

“I greatly appreciate Barbara’s leadership of the Office of Sponsored Research over the past 18 months. Please join me in wishing Russell and Barbara well in their new roles,” Livingston wrote.
