May 16, 1997
BOULDER, CO--The University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) today announced the appointment of two leading Washington administrators to become vice presidents of the corporation. Kathryn Schmoll, currently comptroller of the Environmental Protection Agency, will join UCAR as vice president for finance and administration. Jack Fellows will leave his post as chief of the Science and Space Program Branch, U.S. Office of Management and Budget, to become vice president for UCAR and director of UCAR Office of Programs. The new vice presidents will assume their duties in late August or early September.

UCAR is a consortium of over 60 universities with Ph.D. programs in the atmospheric or related sciences. It manages the National Center for Atmospheric Research and other programs of scientific support on behalf of a range of federal agencies including the National Science Foundation.

According to UCAR president Richard Anthes, "A major objective in making these appointments is to build a new senior management team for UCAR that will lead the organization well into the next century."

Schmoll and Fellows each have extensive experience on the federal science scene. As EPA comptroller since 1993, Schmoll has crafted EPA's budget ($6.8 billion this year) and led a staff of over 300. Fellows has held his post at OMB since 1984, overseeing and helping to coordinate the programs of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the National Science Foundation, among others, on behalf of Presidents Reagan, Bush, and Clinton.
