College of Veterinary Medicine
The College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) was founded in 2012 and graduated its inaugural class of 102 veterinary students in 2018. The College offers a four-year curriculum that prepares veterinarians to provide exemplary animal care and impact the world by improving animal and human health through research, scholarly activity, and service to the public. Veterinarians reduce the impact of zoonotic diseases on both people and animals, and help to maintain the integrity of the nation's food chain.
