Tom Baldwin is Executive Associate Dean for External Relations in the College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences, and Professor of Biochemistry, at the University of California, Riverside. Previously he was Professor and Head of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics and Founding Director of the Bio5 Institute at the University of Arizona. Baldwin has also held academic positions at Texas A&M University (1981-99), the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (1975-81), and Harvard University (1971-75). At UCR, Baldwin is responsible for programs in a college that spans the so-called “hard” sciences, from mathematics, physics, chemistry, and biology to entomology, botany, and the Agricultural Experiment Station. His duties in this position fit well with his passion for excellence in research, teaching, and public engagement, all with the goal of achieving academic strength at all levels, from K-12 through graduate school.
