Dean Eleanor Green
Washington, D.C., October 2, 2013 – The AAVMC Board of Directors has appointed Dr. Eleanor Green, the Carl B. King Dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at Texas A&M University, as the AAVMC’s representative to the Association of Public and Land Grant Universities (APLU).
As liaison, Dr. Green will serve as a member of the AAVMC board and represent the AAVMC on the APLU’s Commission on Food, Environment, and Renewable Resources (CFERR) Board on Veterinary Medicine and the Board on Agriculture Assembly Budget and Advocacy Committee.
Green is a diplomate of both the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM) and the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (ABVP). She has served as president of three national organizations, the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP), the American Association of Veterinary Clinicians (AAVC), and the ABVP.
“I am dedicated to the mission of the APLU, having earned my undergraduate and DVM degrees at two different land-grant institutions and subsequently held academic appointments at five more land-grant institutions during my career,” Green said. “Higher education has never been more important to our society and the focus on the public interest is particularly relevant today. It is an honor to represent the AAVMC as APLU liaison.”
She replaces Dr. Trevor Ames, dean of the University of Minnesota College Of Veterinary Medicine, as liaison. The term of appointment is two years and may be renewed once, for a maximum term of four years.
The APLU is a research, policy, and advocacy organization representing 218 public research universities, land-grant institutions, state university systems, and related organizations.
The AAVMC is a nonprofit membership organization working to protect and improve the health and welfare of animals, people and the environment by advancing academic veterinary medicine. Its members include 35 veterinary medical colleges in the United States and Canada, nine departments of veterinary science, eight departments of comparative medicine, thirteen international colleges of veterinary medicine, and five affiliate colleges of veterinary medicine.
