Student Led Initiatives

Our students are actively engaged in diversity and inclusion outreach through multiple initiatives. They are leading efforts as part of the school and the larger campus community as well as at high school and elementary schools in the region. They are committed to supporting the recruitment of underrepresented students into the veterinary medical profession.

Current activities are focused on:

Vet Med Climate Survey

The Coalition, with the goal of creating an environment where every student, staff, and faculty member feels a welcomed part of the community, conducted a climate survey in the Spring of 2015. The survey sought to obtain information on veterinary student experiences, feelings, comfort, and satisfaction pertaining to diversity and inclusion in the veterinary community. This was also an opportunity to identify any areas that may need to be addressed by the school’s leadership. Unfortunately this survey didn’t provide conclusive results. Another survey is being planned for later this academic year.
