Dr. Karin Wittenberg has been appointed Dean Emerita, a recognition awarded by the University of Manitoba for her distinguished service as Dean of the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences. The Board of Governors approved the Faculty Council nomination on June 23, 2020, upon the recommendation of the Chancellor’s Committee.

The nomination reads:

She served as head of Animal Science, associate dean research, and acting dean of the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences (FAFS) before her appointment as the first female dean of the Faculty (2014-2019).

As dean, Karin facilitated the integration of two departments from the former Faculty of Human Ecology within FAFS: Textiles with Biosystems Engineering and Human Nutritional Sciences with Food Science (with the latter forming a new Department of Food and Human Nutritional Sciences).
