The LSU Board of Supervisors approved the merger of the Department of Veterinary Science into the School of Animal Sciences at its meeting Feb. 3, 2012. The merger will strengthen the research and extension programs in both units and complement their move into the new Animal and Food Sciences Laboratory Building that is being built on the Baton Rouge campus, said LSU AgCenter Chancellor Bill Richardson. The faculty and research programs will not change, and shared teaching appointments with the School of Veterinary Medicine and the College of Agriculture will continue, he said.
