DEI Committee

Our DEI Committee is made up of faculty, staff, and students from our undergraduate, graduate, and professional veterinary medical programs.

Our mission as a committee is to create and sustain equitable opportunities through holistic practices and policies for all members of our college, students, staff, faculty, and alums. We work together by fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion to bolster professions of human health, interdisciplinary biomedical research, veterinary medicine, and all adjacent practices. Through our evolving education, innovations, and collaborations, we create leaders that understand the unique needs of a community and incorporate that knowledge to advance the health and welfare of animals and humans.
