Buss, UW's Second Veterinary Dean, To Retire | News
Daryl Buss, dean of veterinary medicine at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, has announced his retirement.
"For someone who always said he never had any interest in administration, 32 years as a department chair and dean turned out to be a very rewarding experience," said Buss, who said in a news release that he will retire from both his administrative and faculty appointments next June.
Buss has served as dean since 1994, when he left the University of Florida's College of Veterinary Medicine after 15 years as chair of the physiological sciences department.
"It is bittersweet to hear of Daryl's retirement plans, as he was the first dean I had the opportunity to hire during my original term as chancellor," said David Ward, UW-Madison interim chancellor, in a news release. "After 17 years, I am proud of that decision. It is a testament to his talent as a leader and his dedication to the job that Wisconsin has one of the best veterinary schools in the country."
