RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. (AP) - A.J. Anglin has been selected as interim vice president for academic affairs at Arkansas Tech University.

A native of Siloam Springs, Anglin brings 40 years of experience in higher education to his new role at Arkansas Tech. He will begin his duties on Jan. 5.

Anglin will succeed John W. Watson, who has served in the position since 2008 and was granted a change in assignment by the Arkansas Tech Board of Trustees to return to full-time teaching at the university.

Robin E. Bowen, president of Arkansas Tech, says it’s anticipated that Anglin will serve as interim vice president for about 18 months. She says the institution intends to have a permanent leader for its academic affairs division in place by July 1, 2016.
