Dan Larson takes over at Oregon State University
Larson was named new executive director of University Housing and Dining Services at Oregon State University, in Corvallis. He succeeds Tom Scheuermann who served as executive director for 20 years.
In December 2013, Dan Larson was named the new executive director of University Housing and Dining Services at Oregon State University (OSU), in Corvallis. Most recently, Larson served as associate director for operations and facilities for the Oregon State University Housing and Dining Services department and has been with OSU since 1996.
Larson has outlined several goals to accomplish within his new post, including improvement of the department’s financial health, administrative reorganization to allow for improved programs and services for students and working to become more engaged and committed to the local economy. “My vision for OSU is to create a vibrant, exciting housing and dining experience,” Larson told The Daily Barometer. He emphasized that the department would “still have the same objectives, programs and commitment to service and the student experience. What may change will be the energy toward some programs over others.”
Larson received a bachelor’s in psychology from Western Oregon State College, now Western Oregon University. He succeeds Tom Scheuermann who served the department for 20 years.
