A Message from Dean Neal Van Alfen: Academic and Strategic Planning Committee Update

 

In November I told you of a new Academic and Strategic Planning Committee, chaired by Professor Susan Harrison in the Department of Environmental Science and Policy, that is helping the college develop a new academic and strategic plan. The planning includes our responsibilities to the Agricultural Experiment Station, Cooperative Extension, and our campus academic mission.

The committee has met weekly this year, and has incorporated many of the internal and external suggestions that they received in a preliminary report, Discussion Points for College Planning, that was e-mailed to CA&ES faculty and department managers on April 6. The CA&ES Dean’s Advisory Council also reviewed the report last week and gave their useful feedback on behalf of many of our external stakeholders.

On April 26, the Academic and Strategic Planning Committee is holding a Town Hall Meeting from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. in ARC Ballroom A. The committee and I welcome all CA&ES faculty, department managers, and interested staff to attend this meeting. Your input will be used by the committee to help craft the future of our college.

The committee’s final report will be completed by July. Many thanks to committee members and alternates Susan Harrison, Douglas Adams, Charles Bamforth, Ted Bradshaw, Pat Conners, Douglas Cook, Kathryn Dewey, John Eadie, David Gilchrist, Thomas Harter, Bruce Hartsough, Elizabeth Mitcham, Anita Oberbauer, Vito Polito, Daniel Sumner, Gang Sun, Ronald Tjeerdema, Diane Ullman, and Andrew Walker. Their input and time commitment has been invaluable to the college.

As always, I value your feedback. If you have questions or comments, please e-mail me.

Lee Baldwin: Dannon Institute Mentorship Award

 

R. Lee Baldwin, professor emeritus in the Department of Animal Science, received the 2006 Dannon Institute Mentorship Award for his success in mentoring his students. The Dannon Institute, in coordination with the American Society for Nutrition, presents the award annually to a nutrition educator who has demonstrated outstanding mentoring qualities by developing investigators of nutritional sciences.

The proof of Baldwin's mentoring is seen in the successes of his students, half of whom hold academic positions while many others hold important positions in research, administration, and business. Baldwin is also an elected member of the National Academy of Sciences.

UC Examines Organic Beef Operation

 

In the first study of its kind in California, researchers at UC Davis have examined an organic beef cattle operation in-depth, identifying management practices, revenues, costs, and marketing. The study, developed by John Harper, Karen Klonsky, and Pete Livingston, is intended as a guide and can be used to make production decisions, determine potential returns, prepare budgets, and evaluate production loans.

Karen Klonsky and Pete Livingston are in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics, and John Harper is a livestock and natural resources advisor in Mendocino and Lake counties. The study — Sample Costs for an Organic Cow-Calf Operation: 50 Head in the North Coast Region of Mendocino & Lake Counties — is available at http://coststudies.ucdavis.edu.

Peter Moyle Helps Wild Salmon in Klamath River

 

Peter Moyle, professor in wildlife, fish and conservation biology, helped look at the Klamath River for a National Academy of Sciences study. He said that his biggest worry is that expectations may be raised too high for the positive impacts that the removal of Klamath dams would have for the salmon and steelhead populations.

The owner of the dams, PacifiCorp, could face a costly decision: Should it spend up to $175 million to erect very long fish ladders, or should it abandon the dams and undertake the nation’s largest removal project? Options include catching fish and hauling them around the dams, but that effort has not been very effective on the Columbia River and Northwest streams. Construction of fish ladders over the dams could prove formidable. Biologists question if salmon and steelhead trout would even use the ladders.

Ceremonial ‘Mash’ Inaugurates Brewing Equipment

 

The ‘ceremonial mash’ was the highlight of the grand opening of the recently updated pilot brewery on campus. New equipment for the pilot brewery was acquired over the past several years and will be used for teaching during the spring quarter, thanks to assistance in design and installation donated by Anheuser-Busch brewing company.

The pilot brewery is located in the Department of Food Sciences in Cruess Hall. The department’s brewing science program is the premier brewing program in the nation and one of the top few worldwide. Charles Bamforth is chair of the food science and technology department and is the Anheuser-Busch Endowed Professor of Malting and Brewing Science.

Plants, Carbon Dioxide, and Global Warming

 

The ability of plants to counteract global warming by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and storing it is as carbon in the soil is limited, report researchers at UC Davis. “The discovery implies that future carbon storage by land ecosystems may be smaller than previously thought, and therefore less of a solution to global warming,” said Johan Six, one of the study’s co-author and an agroecologist in the plant sciences department.

The lead author of the study was Kees-Jan van Groenigen, a doctoral student in plant sciences. Other collaborators included Marie-Ann de Graaf and Chris van Kessel both from the plant sciences department.

Growing Academic Career Fields (CA&ES-Related)

 

According to a report by Money magazine, hydrology is the 7th fastest growing career field in the U.S. The six faster-growing fields are all in health sciences (including forensics). Other top placings related to our college are environmental engineering (16), atmospheric science (50), museum technicians and curators (72), soil and plant scientists (73), agricultural and food science technicians (79), zoologists and wildlife biologists (81), animal scientists (82), and food scientists and technologists (97).

The article also developed a ranking of 50 “best jobs” based on a number of factors including growth rate, salary, stress, flexibility, creativity, etc. Some of the CA&ES academic notables in that list include college professor (2), human resources manager (4), technical writer (13), physical scientist (16), curriculum developer (18), editor (19), landscape architect (34), biotechnology research scientist (35), biological scientist (41), and environmental scientist (45).
