College of Veterinary Medicine

Developing a new approach to veterinary medical education

Designed to meet Arizona’s growing need for veterinarians, the College of Veterinary Medicine will provide each student with a wide range of clinical experiences in university, private and public settings. Our mission is to graduate exceptional veterinarians more efficiently, address rural veterinarian shortages in Arizona communities, train skilled small animal practitioners, benefit bioscience business, and promote public health. 

There are many opportunities for donors to make a difference in the College of Veterinary Medicine. Whether you support our facilities, our faculty, or our students, your gift helps raise the standard for veterinary medicine across Arizona and make education more accessible to Arizona residents than ever before.

"Our learner-forward curriculum will transform the student and faculty experience and advance the profession. From day-one, we will develop career-ready veterinarians who serve the people of Arizona and the world.”

-Julie Funk, Dean

The 160-acre Campus Agricultural Center provides the primary small animal, equine, and food-animal clinical skills education sites for pre-clinical students. These animals and facilities will be used to teach students handling, restraint, and basic veterinary care procedures.
