College of Veterinary Medicine
CAMPAIGN GOAL: $133.3 Million
Today, nearly 70 percent of new infectious diseases in humans are transmitted from animals. Identifying the causes of these diseases and exploring new vaccines take years, specialized talent, and the latest equipment and facilities. Specialized research linking the health of animals and people has placed the College of Veterinary Medicine at Washington State University at the forefront of veterinary science.
The college was one of the first established at WSU and is the fifth oldest college of veterinary medicine in the nation. Today we are the primary provider of veterinary medical education in the Northwest. As a land-grant institution, we have trained doctors who care for pets and agricultural animals. Our research in neuroscience, cancer, and molecular structures has translated into discoveries about humans. Now the college is well positioned to build on the following key strengths for new leadership in the care of animals and people.
- Meeting the global infectious disease challenges for humans and animals through the Paul G. Allen School for Global Animal Health
- Bridging brain, behavior, and health through breakthroughs in the neuroscience of emotions, motivation, and sleep
- Creating fundamental health science advances through the School of Molecular Biosciences
- Enhancing the contributions of tomorrow’s veterinarians to society through scholarships, advanced leadership and communications training, and sustained instructional excellence
Through The Campaign for Washington State University, the college will pursue the big ideas that drive positive global change. For us this means a renewed attack on infectious disease, long-awaited breakthroughs in brain science, creating fundamental health science advances through molecular biosciences, and providing unsurpassed education for the veterinary leaders of tomorrow.
AN INVITATION TO GIVE
The College of Veterinary Medicine has the vision and the commitment to become the model research and teaching veterinary institution for the 21st century. We now ask our alumni and friends to help us advance our key areas of strength in emerging diseases, global animal health and poverty, safe food and healthy animals, and model systems to promote human health.
Your partnership with us will create an enthusiastic response to the urgent health needs of an interconnected world. Through the Campaign for Washington State University, we invite you to join us to help complete the important work we have begun.
