UC Davis Appoints New Dean of Veterinary Medicine
The University of California, Davis today (August 10) named Mark Stetter, dean and professor in the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at Colorado State University, as the new dean of the School of Veterinary Medicine (SVM). He will officially step into the position on October 18.
“The School of Veterinary Medicine, a widely recognized world leader in its field, exemplifies veterinary education, research, and care—and UC Davis—at their best,” said Mary Croughan, provost and executive vice chancellor. “It was critical for us to find a new dean who could carry on and advance the school’s stellar legacy. We are very fortunate that Dr. Stetter has agreed to serve in this critical leadership position.”
Stetter replaces John Pascoe, who has served as interim dean since July 1, when Michael Lairmore stepped down after nearly 10 years as dean. Croughan has expressed her deep gratitude for Pascoe’s skilled interim service and Lairmore’s decade of distinguished leadership at SVM.
