Dr. Jennifer Bundy became an Assistant Professor for the Department of Animal Science on June 1, 2017. Dr. Bundy has a 80% teaching, advising and student services appointment and a 20% scholarship of teaching and learning. She teaches or co-teaches several Animal Science courses:
Animal Science 352 - Intro Breeding and Genetics. This course focuses on the math and statistics of animal science and how it works together.
Animal Science 110 - Orientation course which is a required course that has 350 students. It orients students to campus climate as well as the Animal Science program and what it offers. Peer mentor groups are heavily involved with this class and help students create a 4-year plan and participate in career fairs.
Animal Science 228 X - This course focuses on animal research in less traditional areas. Many speakers present and open students eyes to what's out there.
As Transfer Student Coordinator Dr. Bundy works with students before they begin ISU to make sure they take the correct courses at the community college or university they are currently attending. Seven transfer student orientations take place throughout the year that she coordinates. She is also a member of the CALS Transfer Articulation committee which includes reps from all of the CALS majors. This committee sets up events and helps students get ready for a successful transition.
Close to 100 students call Dr. Bundy their adviser throughout their college career. Many of the students are transfer students and some are not. She tends to be a more hands-on adviser and likes to visit with her students at least once a semester.
We welcome Dr. Jen Bundy to the new Assistant Professor role and continued success at Iowa State University Department of Animal Science.
