Zistboom: A new Dean has been appointed for Iran's College of Environment (CoE). Dr. Isa Kalantari, Head of Iran's Department of Environment (DoE) has appointed, Dr. Omid Bozorg Haddad, as the new Dean of the College of Environment.
According to the public relations office of the College of Environment, in an event organized at the conference hall of the College of Environment for introducing the new dean, Dr. Kaveh Madani, Deputy Head of DoE, also appreciated the strives of the former dean, Dr. Ahmad Talebi who was in this position since 2015.
During this event which was attended by a group of high rank officials from DoE, as well as directors, faculty members and staff of CoE, Dr. Madani noted that in the new era, CoE should put more emphasis on the research activities. He added that sometimes development doesn't necessarily mean growing in size, but is a matter of focusing on one specific field.
Reminding the lack of proper and updated training for some of the staff and rangers of DoE, asked CoE to play a more active role in this field in the coming years.

During this meeting, the new Dean of CoE who is also the head of the Environment and Sustainable Development Research Center, emphasized on the importance of restructuring the education and research activities in this college, considering the decreasing number of the students in the universities of all over the country and the prospect of the persistence or even intensifying of this trend in the next years.
