Gustavus Adolphus College Provost and Dean of the College Mark Braun announced Monday that Dr. Darrin Good would be leaving his post as Associate Provost and Dean of Sciences and Education in mid-June to assume the role of Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean of the Faculty at Whittier College in California.

Dr. Good came to Gustavus in 2012 from Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois, where he served on the faculty in the biology department since 1995. He also chaired the Division of Natural Sciences, representing and supervising six departments with 16 majors, 10 pre-professional programs, and 48 faculty members.

“With Darrin’s wealth of experiences as a faculty member and as a leader of divisions and departments at a variety of private colleges, I am confident that we have found the right person to spearhead the College’s area of academic affairs,” said Whittier President Sharon Herzberger in a release on the college’s website.

Provost Braun said that the College would announce plans to replace Dr. Good in the coming weeks.
