Mississippi State alumnus Dr. Jack D. Smith, a board-certified theriogenologist, is the new associate dean for academic affairs at the university’s College of Veterinary Medicine.

He is responsible for oversight and management of areas ranging from student recruitment to outcome-assessment data reporting of all veterinary graduates.

Smith joined the CVM faculty in 2002 as a theriogenology resident and became an assistant professor two years later. In 2010, he was named director of clinical education.

Smith received a doctor of veterinary medicine degree from MSU in 1999. Prior to returning to the land-grant institution, he worked in private clinical practice in Georgia.

In addition to being selected for the campus Office of Research and Economic Development’s Fred Tom Mitchell Faculty Leadership Program, he is a past participant of the Association of American Veterinary Colleges of Veterinary Medicine’s Leadership Academy in Washington, D.C.

Most recently, Smith was elected secretary for the American College of Theriogenologists, as well as to the board of directors for the Mississippi Veterinary Medical Association.
