The Texas A&M University System’s Board of Regents named a much-decorated professor, Jeffrey W. Savell ‘75, Ph.D., as Vice Chancellor and Dean of Agriculture and Life Sciences for Texas A&M on June 3rd.


Savell is a University Distinguished Professor, Regents Professor and the E.M. “Manny” Rosenthal Chair in the Department of Animal Science at Texas A&M. He earned his bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate degrees from Texas A&M.

His appointment is effective June 6.

“Dr. Savell is a great Aggie who is well-respected within academia and the agricultural community,” said Chancellor John Sharp. “An added bonus – he makes pretty good barbecue!”


Immersed in Aggie tradition

Savell teaches the introductory course in meat science as well as a freshmen class on Texas barbecue. He also leads a graduate course in carcass composition and quality, and team-teaches a graduate and undergraduate course in Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point.

A past president of the American Meat Science Association, Savell is a member of the Meat Industry Hall of Fame.

“Dr. Savell is a highly recognized scholar who has been identified among the top 2% of most-cited researchers in the world,” said Texas A&M President M. Katherine Banks. “His impact and long tenure at Texas A&M includes teaching 12,000 Aggies and producing 150 graduate students who have become leaders in academia, industry and government.”
