Green to be top ag administrator at University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Ronnie D. Green, a resident of Sutton and a beef geneticist, has been named University of Nebraska Vice President and Harlan Vice Chancellor for the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

This is the top ag administrator post at the university. He is replacing John Owens, who will return to faculty ranks June 30. Owens has been vice president and vice chancellor since January 2001.

Green, senior director of global technical services at Pfizer Animal Health, will begin his work at the university July 19 pending approval by the University of Nebraska Board of Regents.

"I see this as a phenomenal opportunity to serve the people of the state of Nebraska and beyond," Green said. "The global possibilities for the institute at this time in its history are remarkable. The Global Water for Food Institute and Nebraska Innovation Campus are two noteworthy projects that will make a lasting positive contribution to the state and the world. The opportunity to be a part of those initiatives as well as to continue to evolve the important research and outreach of the university is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to help transform our world."
