Washington State University:  Provost and Academic Vice President (1991-96)

Washington State University (WSU), the state's land-grant university, in 1996 had 19,000 students, 4,800 faculty-staff and 75 locations throughout the state including three branch campuses, the Agricultural Research Center, Cooperative Extension and the Small Business Development Center. During his tenure at WSU, Thomas George was instrumental in moving the campus forward.

Chaired the Executive Budget Committee overseeing an annual operating budget of over $400 million plus a biennial capital construction budget as high as $100 million.

Played a key role in fund-raising and securing external grants for the university:

Led WSU in planning activities:

Initiated the use of teaching portfolios in all tenure-promotion dossiers.

Created the Staff Senate.

Played an active role in biennial budget submissions to the state:

Secured approval for a Doctor of Pharmacy degree.

Worked with the Faculty Senate to establish a four-year baccalaureate degree guarantee for entering first-year students.

Carried out an administrative reorganization by eliminating two vice provost positions and creating a new vice provost for human relations and resources assigned to enhance personnel services and establish renewed commitment to diversity.

Took steps to enhance diversity at the campus:

Enhanced the teaching-learning environment through using technology to create Virtual WSU (in cooperation with the industrial partners Microsoft and Asymetrix).

State University of New York at Buffalo:  Dean of Natural Sciences and Mathematics (1985-91)

At the State University of New York at Buffalo, highlights of Thomas George's six-year tenure as dean of the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics (FNSM) included working with the faculty and administration to launch new programs and increase external support:
