Dean’s Message

Dear CAHNR Alumni and Friends,

As we reach the end of another academic year, a new wave of graduates has transitioned from students to alumni. Their time at UConn may have come to an end, but this momentous occasion marks a new beginning for them on their personal and professional journeys. It also signifies the addition of another ring in the CAHNR tree, which is already strong thanks to support from our community of dedicated alumni, faculty, staff, and volunteers.

CAHNR is also experiencing a revitalization in our faculty and staff due to a wave of recent retirements. We thank those colleagues for their contributions over the years, and we seek to take advantage of the opportunity to explore how we can maximize new expertise in new hire searches. With hiring activity in every department, CAHNR will have welcomed over 60 new faculty members between the 2021-2023 school years. With these new colleagues come new ideas, new energy, and new strengths. We’re excited to welcome them to CAHNR and see the impact they will have on our College now and in the future.

Thank you all for your continued support of the College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources and the Ratcliffe Hicks School of Agriculture. I wish you a safe and healthy summer.

Go Huskies.

Indrajeet Chaubey, Dean and Director
