Frank Stanton's Vision

The College of Veterinary Medicine's vision of providing an innovative and immersive approach to veterinary medicine is in large part inspired by the mission and generosity of the Stanton Foundation. Dr. Frank Stanton, an alumnus of The Ohio State University and president of CBS from 1946-1971, turned to the College of Veterinary Medicine in the mid-1930s when his beloved Boston Terrier needed medical care.

His experience created a lasting bond with the college that continues to have an impact many decades later. To support areas where he was unable to complete his charitable intentions during his lifetime, the Stanton Foundation was created and has been instrumental in positioning The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine to build preeminence in the way we educate general practitioners, including the creation of the Frank Stanton Veterinary Spectrum of Care Clinic, which will open in 2021. Frank Stanton’s philanthropic love for canines enabled the college to take transformational leaps forward in preparing students to graduate ready to practice broadly and successfully across the spectrum of care.
