Dr George Robinson carries over 30 years of veterinary practice and industry experience to this position, further propelling the college’s core values and mission.

Tuskegee University College of Veterinary Medicine (TUCVM) named George Robinson, DVM, MSPH, as chair of the dean’s advisory board (DAB) last month.

Robinson, who was welcomed into his new role at TUCVM's first virtual 55th Annual Veterinary Medical Symposium, is the former CEO and cofounder of Former Heartland Veterinary Partners. With his over 3 decades of veterinary practice and industry experience, he will "bring a valuable perspective to the college with innovative and transformative members as entrepreneurial partners and advocates," said TUCVM dean Ruby L. Perry, DVM, PhD, DACVR, in a university release.

“I extend my appreciation to Dr George Robinson, who will serve as the chair of the dean’s advisory board, and Drs Saralyn Smith-Carr and Lloyd Jarmon, who will serve as co-chairs of the dean’s alumni board," she said.

The advisory board is made up of influential leaders in business, industry, government, academia, alumni, and other collaborators who support the dean by:

  • Taking counsel in the college’s strategic direction, vision, and decision-making for long-term planning.
  • Providing collaborative expertise, esteemed advice, and various perspectives.
  • Advocating for Tuskegee as supporters and champions.
  • Engaging in and driving fundraising efforts.
  • And elevating the college’s public appearance and prestige, while preserving its legacy.

Robinson says he's excited to join this illustrious group and bring his expertise to the table.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to work with Dean Perry and the members of the dean’s advisory board. Lending expertise and insight is a significant way for me to contribute to the Tuskegee University CVM and the veterinary profession at large,” Robinson said.
