The College of Veterinary Medicine has been once again selected as a host for the 2022-2023 Faculty Exchange Program in African Veterinary Science.
Eight African veterinary faculty scholars will be embedded in the College of Veterinary Medicine through early December. The program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Agricultural Service, is designed to help developing countries in Africa improve their university agricultural education, research and extension programs by providing one semester of training at U.S. land-grant agricultural universities.
The scholars will be spending time in CVM classrooms, clinics and laboratories, observing how faculty approach what they do while sharing insights from their own backgrounds and experiences.
The scholars and their CVM mentors include:
- Philip Onyono Nyakego (Egerton University, Kenya) – Jared Danielson, senior associate dean for academic and student program success and innovation
- Sylvia Nalubwama (Makerere University, Uganda) – Aliye Karabulut-Ilgu, director of curricular and student assessment
- Lydiah Njihia (University of Nairobi, Kenya) – Amanda Kreuder, assistant professor of veterinary microbiology and preventive medicine
- Samuel Nderitu Nyaga (Egerton University, Kenya) – Eric Rowe, associate professor of biomedical sciences
- Hellen Njeri Maingi (University of Nairobi, Kenya) – Matt Brewer, associate professor of veterinary pathology
- Cherotich Jesca Tangus (University of Nairobi, Kenya) – Matt Brewer, associate professor of veterinary pathology
- Richard Samson (Sokoine University of Agriculture, Tanzania) – Mitch Hiscocks, clinical professor of veterinary diagnostic and production animal medicine
- Dickson Tayebwa (Makerere University, Uganda) – Suzanne Millman, professor of veterinary diagnostic and production animal medicine & Jaime Kopper, assistant professor of veterinary clinical sciences
