If confirmed, Green succeeds Dr. H. Richard Adams, who is returning to a faculty appointment in the university's Department of Veterinary Physiology and Pharmacology.
Green's appointment follows an extensive national search that attracted applicants and nominations from many leading institutions in the United States, Texas A&M officials report in a prepared statement.
If approved by Texas A&M's Board of Regents in January, Green would become the first female to serve as dean of the college. She would begin the new position on March 1.
Green currently serves as professor and chair of the Department of Large Animal Clinical Sciences in the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Florida-Gainesville.
"Dr. Green's leadership of two different colleges of veterinary medicine, as well as her recognized ability to bring together faculty, staff and students to advance a shared vision, equip her well for her responsibilities leading the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences," says Jeffrey S. Vitter, provost and executive vice president for academics at Texas A&M.
