What We’re Reading | UCalgary Faculty of Veterinary Medicine welcomes a new dean

Dr. Renate Weller says veterinarians have important role to play in solving ‘big, global challenges’

By Jennifer Allford, for Faculty of Veterinary Medicine

So far this week, Dr. Renate Weller, DVM, PhD, has moved into her new office at the University of Calgary Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, greeted first-year students at the Foothills campus, met with other students at Spy Hill and has started to introduce herself to faculty and staff. The new dean at UCVM officially began her job Sept. 1, but she and her family have been hard at work since arriving from London, England in mid-August.

“We enrolled our younger children in middle and high school respectively and our older one’s at U of C. We managed to buy a car. Now we are house hunting. I would like to find some acreage where I can keep my donkey and his pony friends,” says Weller, who has moved to Calgary with her husband, Dr. Thilo Pfau, PhD, four children, a donkey, a horse, a pony and two dogs. Before the move, Weller was director of Veterinary Education at CVS Group plc, one of the UK’s largest integrated veterinary services providers. Prior to that position, she was a professor and associate dean at the Royal Veterinary College at the University of London.
