Over the course of its 122-year history, the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine has produced 6,428 veterinarians and over 500 specialists and researchers. Auburn is the 7th oldest college of veterinary medicine in North America and was the first in the southeastern United States. Alumni are scattered throughout all 50 states and many nations. In 1949, Dr. Redding S. Sugg, the third Dean of the College, helped found the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB). This was the first regional education program in the United States that offered veterinary education programs to neighboring states, and is the reason that Auburn veterinarians are prevalent throughout the Southeast. Auburn is proud of its ongoing 64-year partnership in veterinary education with the Commonwealth of Kentucky through the SREB agreement.
The mission of the College of Veterinary Medicine is to prepare individuals for careers of excellence in veterinary medicine, including private and public practice, industrial medicine, academics, and research, and to provide programs of instruction, research, outreach, and service that are in the best interests of the citizens of the State of Alabama, the region, the nation, and the world.
The College is devoted to three strategic goals: (1) enhance student success; (2) promote discovery; and (3) practice the highest standards of veterinary medicine.
