Cornell University: First inductees to Dean’s Leaders Program welcomed to Veterinary College

On June 6, the College of Veterinary Medicine inducted the inaugural members of the Dean’s Leaders Program.

The program, first developed in spring of 2021, was created with two primary missions — to increase the number of graduates filling leadership positions in academia, industry, government and private veterinary practice; and to support diversity at the College of Veterinary Medicine and in the veterinary profession

At the induction ceremony, Lorin Warnick, D.V.M., Ph.D. ’94, Austin O. Hooey Dean of Veterinary Medicine, greeted the group. “Your selection reflects the excellence you have achieved in your academic work so far and our confidence in your future,” Warnick said. “I want to again thank and congratulate our students for taking a leap of faith and joining this brand-new program. As you learn about the various activities, I hope you will find that it will help you on your veterinary journey.”
