Reasons to give

Find out more about why the College of Veterinary Medicine needs your support and what funding areas are a priority now:

Our commitment to students

Our long-term commitment to attracting the best students is evident in our current student body, comprised of individuals who have a myriad of life experiences, excel academically and are ethnically and racially diverse. Our goal is to produce graduates who reflect society, understand the citizenry they serve and are prepared to meet and exceed the expectations for our profession in the future. The cost of education is at its highest — with an average tuition of $21,000 for Kansas residents and $46,000 for non‑residents. Our graduating seniors owe an average debt of $150,000. These costs could prevent students from entering veterinary medicine, which compounds the drastic shortages our profession is facing. Your support will allow students to make attending our college and becoming a veterinarian a reality.

Faculty Enhancement

Attracting and retaining faculty members of the highest caliber is as important as attracting the best and the brightest students.

Recruitment and retention of clinical educators and maintaining clinical teaching caseloads are among the biggest challenges facing veterinary education today. If we continue to function as we have, our teaching caseload will dwindle away as private specialty hospitals meet local demands and cases are no longer referred to Manhattan, Kansas.

With 180 faculty members mentoring students in the College of Veterinary Medicine, students are prepared to face challenges in the future of veterinary medicine. Your support will make a difference in the college’s ability to competitively compensate sought-after faculty members, thereby guaranteeing successful veterinarians for years to come.
