The Dean is the academic, administrative, and community leader of the college, responsible for developing the capacity of the college and moving associated programs forward in reputation, distinction and influence. The dean is expected to expand the intellectual, financial and human assets of the college, while serving as a critical member of the senior leadership team of Cornell University.

The various areas of the college are led by a team of assistant deans, associate deans, department chairs and directors who report directly to the dean. These members oversee the daily operations of their particular units and collaborate with the dean to fulfill the college's mission. 

Austin O. Hooey Dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University

Dean Lorin Warnick

Lorin D. Warnick, D.V.M., Ph.D. '94, serves as the Austin O. Hooey Dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University, and as professor of ambulatory and production medicine. Previously, Warnick served as associate dean for veterinary education and director of the Cornell University Hospital for Animals (CUHA).

As dean, Warnick has overseen significant advances in the college’s teaching, research and service missions since his appointment in 2016. Under his leadership, numerous notable new initiatives have launched, including the Center for Veterinary Business and Entrepreneurship, the Richard P. Riney Canine Health Center, the Duffield Institute for Animal Behavior, and the Department of Public and Ecosystem Health. He dramatically expanded the college’s commitment to diversity, inclusion and well-being through establishing the new leadership position of assistant dean for inclusion and academic excellence and the founding of the Dean’s Leaders Program. Notably, he led partnerships with the Cayuga Health System, Weill Cornell Medicine and the Tompkins County Health Department to guide Cornell University’s nationally recognized pandemic response efforts.

Warnick received his D.V.M. degree from Colorado State University and his Ph.D. in Veterinary Medicine from Cornell University. He is a Diplomate in the American College of Veterinary Preventive Medicine (1995). He joined the Cornell faculty in 1996 and has had responsibilities in clinical service and teaching in the Ambulatory and Production Medicine Service as well as research in the epidemiology of zoonotic infectious diseases and the emergence of antimicrobial resistance.
