Dr. Gregory Haddock served as dean of Northwest's Graduate School three years prior to becoming acting dean of the Melvin D. and Valorie G. Booth College of Business and Professional Studies in 2011. He has served as vice provost since 2010.

Haddock came to Northwest in 1996 as an assistant professor and was promoted to associate professor in 2003. He served as department chair of geology/geography from 2002 to 2010. He has taught a variety of courses in the geography and geographic information sciences programs, including Maps and Map Interpretation, Spatial Analysis and Geostatistics, and Digital Image Processing.

Originally from the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area, Haddock earned his bachelor of arts degree in music and geography at Mary Washington College in Fredericksburg, Va., in 1990. He earned his master of science and doctor of philosophy degrees in geography at the University of Idaho in 1993 and 1996. His research focused on geographic information systems and environmental modeling. Expertise included programming in C in the HP/UX operating system including writing and interfacing software libraries and APIs within the ARC/INFO GIS environment.

Before joining Northwest, Haddock was a data specialist for the Idaho State Climate Office, research assistant for the agricultural engineering department and lecturer for the geography department. Outside of academic pursuits, research projects included fugitive dust modeling of PM10 (particulate matter less than 10 micrometers) in the Columbia Plateau and monitoring local weather conditions in old growth forest versus recently burned or clearcut mountain sides in northwestern Montana. The latter project involved real-time weather station program debugging using a CR10 datalogger in extreme environmental conditions.

Examples of professional service at Northwest include serving and leading several faculty committees. In 2002-2003 he was president of the faculty senate. Haddock also has worked with university outreach, coordination of grants and international affairs.
