But for Ohio State and its College of Veterinary Medicine, key developments in animal and human health would have gone unrealized. The College of Veterinary Medicine kicked off the public phase its fund-raising campaign on Friday, October 5, during Reunion-Homecoming Weekend.
Key priorities for the College of Veterinary Medicine include: Expansion and enhancement of the Veterinary Medical Center ($25 million), student scholarships ($15 million), and faculty and program support ($15 million). Additional support is targeted for specific programs, research, facilities and equipment, with an overall goal of raising $75 million by June 30, 2016.
Because improvements in animal health also strongly impact human health, the College of Veterinary Medicine makes a difference in animal and human health both locally and globally through new discoveries, procedures, and treatments. The college pioneers improved medical and surgical methods, provides direct care for pets and farm animals, and serves the broader community through efforts such as an animal Blood Bank and conservation partnerships with zoos and animal shelters.
