Invest in the College of Veterinary Medicine

Make a difference for the health and well-being of animals and humans here in Kansas — and beyond.

College of Veterinary Medicine

The future of veterinary medicine

K-State researchers, educators and students work relentlessly to tackle challenges looming over Kansas, the nation and the international community. Their work unlocks urgent answers in real time.

From headline-making diseases to household pets

Whether tracking zoonotic disease variants, advancing safe and sustainable livestock farming practices for a growing global population, or supporting the powerful connection between people and their beloved animal companions, we are perfectly positioned to deliver results.

On their way to becoming leaders in veterinary medicine, our students are exposed to varied field experiences, rigorous research practices, and opportunities to hone communication and collaboration skills. Donor support helps the college adapt nimbly to headline-making challenges like COVID or bird flu. 

College of Veterinary Medicine

We’re working hard to reduce the amount of debt students take on while they earn their K-State degrees. With support from donors like you, our students can focus on serving communities of all kinds and building careers that bring them satisfaction. 

Donors have made a difference by investing in:  

  • Facilities and equipment necessary to conduct humane, safe and forward-thinking clinical and lab research 
  • Faculty scholars who train the next generation of veterinary science professionals and model effective practices 
  • Scholarship support to keep this vital field accessible to people from all backgrounds 
  • Student learning, field experiences, support programs and career advising that make our grads the best they can be. 
Scholarships can make a huge difference in the life of a veterinary student.

Accessible animal care

240,000 miles and 30,000 veterinary surgeries. That’s the impact of K-State’s Shelter Medicine Program. Shelter medicine is where community service meets education. By providing veterinary care in areas where there are barriers to access, the program introduces students to the importance of community outreach within the veterinary field.
