NIFA Director Named to Lead UF/IFAS

Dr. J. Scott Angle, NIFA Director

Dr. J. Scott Angle accepted an offer to become the Vice President for the University of Florida College of Agriculture and Life Sciences in Gainesville, Florida. He will assume this role in July 2020. The Department will appoint an Acting Director, who will be based in Washington, D.C., and will serve following Dr. Angle’s departure. In the meantime, the National Institute of Food and Agriculture’s (NIFA) leadership team will work closely with Dr. Angle to plan for the Agency’s transition and ensure operations will continue seamlessly without effecting mission continuity. Dr. Angle has been a steady hand and visible leader for NIFA since being sworn in by Secretary Perdue on October 29, 2018.
