Dr. Croney will be leading a Center that includes scientists and educators from the College of Agriculture, the College of Veterinary Medicine, and the Livestock Behavior Research Unit-Agricultural Research Service.

    Responsibilities for the new position will include soliciting both traditional and non-traditional sources of extramural funding for the Center’s research and outreach activities; serving as spokesperson and resource person on public policy welfare issues; and disseminating knowledge, guidance and expertise of animal welfare science through a variety of media. As Director, Dr. Croney will be charged with developing and maintaining national and international relationships with leaders in animal agriculture, animal welfare faculty at other universities and institutions, NGOs and the general public.

    The Center for Animal Welfare Science hosts the largest collaborative group of scientists in the United States working in these fields, bringing together diverse, cross-disciplinary approaches to animal well-being issues in the areas of animal and poultry science, veterinary medicine, psychology, philosophy, genetics, public health, and zoology. The mission of the Center is to promote the welfare of animals through innovation in research, education and outreach.
