The Dean of the College of Agriculture, Alan Sams, announced that Dr. Penny Diebel will be stepping down from her position as Assistant Dean to return to her faculty position in the Department of Applied Economics. While the exact effective date is not yet definite because of the current Covid crisis, it is planned for approximately July 1. 

Dr. Diebel has led the College's academic programs office with distinction for 7 years, gaining a reputation across campus for innovation, accountability and, most of all, excellent support for our students in their educational and professional development. According to Dean Sams "Penny has served OSU, the College of Agricultural Sciences and its students well and we look forward to her continued contributions in her faculty role." 

We in Applied Economics are proud of Penny's accomplishments to the College, and we are looking forward to again working with her ever day!
