Castiglioni Says 'Goodbye' As CVM Administrator

Posted May 18, 2017

CastiglioniFaculty, staff, administrators, and students celebrated the service of Dr. Evelyn Tiffany-Castiglioni to the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM) and wished her a fond farewell as an administrator in the college during a reception on Monday, May 15, in the VENI Building’s Mark Francis Room.

Castiglioni, who previously served as CVM associate dean for undergraduate education and head of the Department of Veterinary Integrative Biosciences (VIBS), began as an assistant provost in the Texas A&M Office of the Provost in March and continued to serve as VIBS department chair until June.

Now, Castiglioni remains as a part-time faculty member in VIBS while serving as assistant provost, a newly created position designed to develop strategies and programs to encourage more faculty nominations to prestigious awards.

“This new position is in keeping with the prominent goal of President (Michael K.) Young and Provost (Karan) Watson to ‘raise the bar’ at TAMU to reach an even higher level of excellence,” said Dr. Eleanor Green, the Carl B. King Dean of Veterinary Medicine at Texas A&M. “I can think of no one more suited to this position.”

In the CVM, Castiglioni developed an enviable reputation for successful nominations of faculty and staff for awards at all levels, according to Green.

“Her letters were consistently compelling in content and well-targeted to the respective reviewers and decision makers; her impact in CVM in helping faculty receive awards which set them up for higher level awards is impressive,” Green said. “I have no doubt she will make an impact on TAMU in this new role.”

In Castiglioni’s absence, Dr. Jane Welsh will serve as VIBS interim department head until a permanent department head is named.
