GPVEC Leader

Dr. Brian Vander Ley ('08)
Brian Vander Ley, assistant professor and veterinary epidemiologist at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, has been named the assistant director of the Great Plains Veterinary Educational Center (GPVEC) near Clay Center, Nebraska. In his new role Vander Ley will oversee center facilities and local relationships. The move will more closely align the 30-year-old center that serves as a hub for the State of Nebraska's beef industry with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Professional Program in Veterinary Medicine in which students complete two years of veterinary medicine education at UNL before transferring to Iowa State's College of Veterinary Medicine for the final two years of study.
