Financial support of the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine plays a vital role in continuing to meet the needs of our students, faculty and vital research programs. You can choose how you want to designate your donation — an endowment for students, faculty, or your favorite program, campus improvements or any one of the college’s leading areas of research.

With the support of our friends and alumni — the Auburn Family — we can become an even greater College of Veterinary Medicine. The Auburn family is one of the most unique things about this University. It sets us apart from others. We believe in giving back. And thanks to your gift, Auburn will continue to influence lives for generations to come.

Areas to Give

As the College of Veterinary Medicine continues to advance its mission of training the world’s next generation of veterinarians, discover breakthroughs in meaningful research, and provide the best care possible for our clients and patients, our numerous programs and endeavors need your help to continue providing outstanding education and service. You can see for yourself the many different areas that count on your support, and choose the one that fits your drive to give.

Donor Recognition

It is impossible for the College of Veterinary Medicine to continue making progress in teaching, research, and service without the continuing support of our faculty, alumni and friends. Philanthropic donors are the lifeblood of our efforts. We remain grateful for the generosity of our alumni and friends who believe in our vision and express that belief through their continued financial support.

To recognize our donors’ commitment to the College of Veterinary Medicine, we have several societies that acknowledge the contributions of those who have invested in veterinary medicine at Auburn University.

Alumni Advisory Council

The College of Veterinary Medicine Alumni Advisory Council plays an integral role in guiding the college and raising private support for various activities.  The council consists of twelve members and three officers.  Members are elected for four years on a staggered-term basis, with one-fourth of the terms expiring each year.

The Council also contains non-voting honorary and ex-officio members.  Honorary members may serve at the discretion of the dean of the College.  Members are selected from Alabama, Kentucky and other states with active alumni.  Dean Calvin Johnson meets with the council during the fall and spring and receives insight for college programs, planning and development.

If you are interested in being considered for membership on this board as seats become available, please provide a current curriculum vitae which includes evidence of your support for Auburn University and the College of Veterinary Medicine.  In addition, letters of support written by at least two Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine alumni must be received.  All material should be sent to:
