What makes the difference between a good college of veterinary medicine and a great one? You do!
Private support — your support — provides the funds Auburn Vet Med uses to purchase vital equipment, provide scholarships and study opportunities, recruit and retain world-class faculty and build and renovate classrooms, lab space and other facilities. Just a few examples of CVM programs and facilities that have benefitted from private support include the Scott-Ritchey Research Center, whose accomplishments in the area of One Health are internationally recognized; the Canine Performance Sciences Program, defining the cutting edge of detection dog science; and the Southeastern Raptor Center, one of the Southeast’s leading facilities for the rehabilitation of injured and orphaned raptors.
None of those programs — along with many others — would have achieved their current level of excellence without private support, and it is that same support that in coming years will enable Auburn to continue to position itself as a national leader in veterinary education while preparing future veterinarians for the challenges ahead. Our advancement officers are both proud and privileged to work with alumni and friends of the College in structuring gifts that meet donors’ interests and needs, while also providing the margin of excellence our faculty, students, staff and administration require in order to reach their maximum potential. We welcome the opportunity to speak with you about supporting the Auburn College of Veterinary Medicine.
