After more than a year as interim vice president for finance and administration at Oregon State University, Michael Green has been given the job on a permanent basis.
The university announced the change on Tuesday.
“Mike Green is the ideal person for this job,” OSU President Ed Ray said in a news release. “His nearly three decades of higher education administration experience have provided him the leadership qualities, financial acumen and management experience to help lead Oregon State.”
Green came to OSU in 2014 to serve as associate vice president for finance and administration following 23 years in various roles with the chancellor’s office in the Oregon University System.
He became interim vice president for finance after Glenn Ford, the university’s vice president for finance and administration and chief financial officer, left OSU to take another job. In July 2016, Green was named interim vice president for finance and administration.
Green, a certified public accountant, holds a bachelor’s degree from Oregon State and an associate’s degree from Linn-Benton Community College.
