Jim Munger, vice provost for academic planning, will retire at the end of June after 31 years of service to the university. The campus community is invited to a reception in his honor from 4-6 p.m. Monday, May 6, in the Benjamin Victor Gallery.
Munger earned baccalaureate degrees in psychology and zoology (at UC Davis and UC Berkeley, respectively) before earning his Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Arizona. He served as a NATO Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Alberta upon graduation, and then took a four-year postdoc position at the University of Wisconsin. He joined the Department of Biology at Boise State in 1988 and was elected chair 10 years later. In 2006, after serving eight years as chair, Munger was selected to serve as vice provost for academic planning.
