2017 ASCL Speaker - Daniel Bernardo

Dr. Daniel J. Bernardo resumed his role as Provost and Executive Vice President of Washington State University (WSU) in mid-June, 2016 after being named Interim President on July 7, 2015 following the untimely death of President Elson S. Floyd on June 20, 2015.

On May 16, 2014, Bernardo was named Provost and Executive Vice President of WSU. He served in the role on an interim basis from June 1, 2013 to May 15, 2014. As Provost and Executive Vice President, Bernardo serves as the senior academic officer for the university and has responsibility for academic planning; budgeting; diversity programs, international programs, enrollment management, and recruitment and retention of faculty, staff, and students. Reporting to the President, the Provost and Executive Vice President works with a team of academic deans, vice-provosts, senior administrators, faculty, staff, and student governance bodies to formulate and implement policies in furtherance of WSU’s strategic goals.

 Bernardo has extensive experience in higher education -- including teaching, research, administration, and policy development -- at the university, college and department levels. Previously, Dr. Bernardo served as Vice President for Agriculture and Extension and Dean of the College of Agricultural, Human and Natural Resource Sciences (CAHNRS) from 2005-2013. In that position, he was responsible for administering teaching, research, and outreach programs in food, agriculture, natural resources and human sciences. Together, CAHNRS and WSU Extension had over 2,200 employees and an annual operating budget of over

$180 million. As Dean of CAHNRS, he led efforts to reinvigorate WSU’s food and agricultural programs, including raising over $220 million in private contributions to fund endowed chairs, facility improvements, and programmatic activities.

Prior to moving to Washington State, Bernardo was a Professor and Department Head of the Department of Agricultural Economics at Kansas State University (KSU) from 1995 through 2005. Bernardo was on the Agricultural Economics faculty at Oklahoma State University from 1985 to 1995, where he conducted research and taught courses on a variety of topics, including production economics, water resource policy, and agribusiness economics. Dr. Bernardo has published over 200 papers on various agricultural economics topics.
