Reappointment of Dr. Kelly: Dean of Veterinary Medicine
Having received the report of the Dean's Review Committee, President Judith Rodin and Provost Robert Barchi announced that they will recommend to the Trustees at their May meeting the reappointment of Alan Kelly as Dean of the School of Veterinary Medicine.
They noted, "the Committee's report makes clear, he enjoys overwhelming support from his faculty and is regarded as an extremely effective dean who is deeply committed to the School. His tenure has seen an expansion of facilities, much needed laboratory renovations, and the acquisition of state funds for a new teaching and research building. He has helped to recruit excellent faculty and the student body continues to be superb academically.
"The School is considered one of the top schools in the world in basic scientific research in veterinary medicine, and it leads all U.S. schools and colleges in the impact of its basic science publications. It is also world-renowned in a number of clinical areas: postgraduate and clinical specialty education, equine sports medicine, and companion animal clinical programs, such as critical care and emergency medicine. He has been especially successful at securing very strong and unprecedented support for the School from the Commonwealth as his garnering of funds for the new building and for student scholarships attest."
Under his leadership, the School of Veterinary Medicine has advanced its position as one of the best schools of its kind in the world.
