Two endowed professors at the UF College of Veterinary Medicine received chairs noting their distinguished designations during a special presentation at an informal breakfast gathering with Dean Jim Lloyd on Sept. 25.

Drs. Rowan Milner and Dan Lewis, both faculty members in the college’s department of small animal clinical sciences, have occupied their endowed professorships for several years, before UF Health and UF Foundation administrators began the tradition of presenting chairs to individuals whose professorships were endowed in more recent years, so Milner and Lewis have not been included.

Lewis is the Jerry and Lola Collins Eminent Scholar Chair in Veterinary Sports Medicine. Milner is the Hills Associate Professor of Oncology.

Endowed professorships are among the most significant awards conferred to faculty, and are intended to be the University’s most prestigious recognition for continued scholarly achievement and distinction.
