Tracy Greene, Emporia State’s General Counsel since 2005 and Records Custodian since spring 2011, will leave ESU in June to take on a new position as University Counsel for South Dakota State University. Her appointment, effective June 22, is pending approval from the South Dakota Board of Regents.
“My time and experiences at Emporia State University, a top-notch comprehensive regional university, are indescribably valuable and will always be dear to me,” Greene said in a prepared statement released by ESU earlier today. “Given SDSU’s proven reputation as a premiere teaching and research university, I am eager to embrace this exciting new professional opportunity.”
Greene will be the institution’s first university counsel, a position which was created to support the university’s growth in research activity, contracts and agreements and licensing, according to SDSU’s website. Greene will also work with several departments in a variety of areas including employment matters, public records and risk management.
With an enrollment of nearly 13,000 students, SDSU, a Division I university, is the largest institution in South Dakota. It is a land-grant university with eight colleges.
