CASNR Dean Galyean featured in 'Every day, I'm a Red Raider' Texas Monthly ad
Michael Galyean, dean of Texas Tech's College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, is featured in the March 2016 issue of Texas Monthly as part of the university's ongoing national marketing campaign titled, "Every day, I'm a Red Raider."
Galyean was recognized last summer as one of the '20 Influential Farm Animal Veterinary Professors' in the nation by Vet Tech Colleges. The rankings represent 20 professors who have exhibited great influence in the areas of farm and food animal care and growth, according to the website's blog. The website promotes farm animal veterinarians who help keep flocks and herds disease-free in order to produce better, healthier food sources.
"I'm very honored to be included in a group of scientists and educators of this caliber," Galyean said at the time. "Although my name and picture might be highlighted, in reality, this recognition reflects more on the hard work and success of the students I've been privileged to work with over the years than it does on my own efforts." In its ranking, Vet Tech Colleges noted Galyean's research in beef cattle nutrition and management as well as his teaching and research in animal nutrition. He is the only professor from a university in Texas who was recognized.
The university notes that the website, IAmARedRaider.com, accompanies the campaign. It includes features highlighting alumni, students, faculty and traditions that embody the Red Raider spirit. Website visitors can submit their own Red Raider story to be incorporated in the campaign through Texas Tech's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts. They can also download graphics for their own social media profiles to show the world that every day, they are a Red Raider.
