Groen moves

Animal scientist Dr Ab Groen has been appointed director of the department of Education and Research Strategy. At present Education and Research Strategy are two separate departments in the Administration Centre, but under Groen the two will merge. Groen (43) was responsible for the successful broadening of the Animal Sciences programme. Students can now not only learn about cattle, chickens and pigs, but also companion animals, such as horses, dogs and cats. The changes have attracted increasing numbers of students. / KV
