Scott Lanyon made significant contributions to graduate education prior to stepping into his current role as Vice Provost and Dean for Graduate Education (in 2016). He developed a proposal writing class, which trained over 300 graduate students and led to a doubling of NSF graduate fellowship recipients at the University of Minnesota. He strengthened the graduate program in Ecology, Evolution and Behavior through an external review and the implementation of a professional development seminar.
