"Robin Morgan's excellent leadership has had a lasting effect on the College of Agricultural and Natural Resources, on the University and on the state of Delaware. Her work has truly shaped the college, and I'm happy that we will continue to benefit from her insights and dedication as she returns to our faculty," Apple said.

During this time of transition, Morgan notes that CANR will continue to move forward on exciting and challenging tasks. 

Morgan said, “New things are on the horizon for us during this next academic year. We must balance a challenging budget, assure the success of our new hires to the best of our ability, continue to win contracts and grants, recruit promising students into our programs, and do everything we can to reach out to the citizens of Delaware and beyond for the benefit of agriculture and our environment.”

“And, we must encourage everyone to visit the UDairy Creamery and eat ice cream,” she added with a smile.
