Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine
Ensuring our community’s well-being

At the veterinary college, wellness is at the heart of our mission to protect and enhance animal, human, and environmental health and welfare — a commitment powerfully enacted during the pandemic. The college brings together animal and human health experts to propel discoveries, shape leaders, and save lives. Through our One Health approach to discovery, learning, and service, our students, faculty, staff, and alumni work across disciplines for the benefit of all.

Help us advance the health and well-being of animals, people, and communities.

A gift to the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine can support:

  • The college's wellness initiative, which focuses on creating a supportive culture that reduces stigma and encourages people to access the resources they need, such as crisis intervention, grief education, wellness workshops and continuing education, animal-assisted therapy, and animal-loss support. By implementing a veterinary social work program, we are taking strides to address stress and compassion fatigue among practitioners and students, as well as provide much-needed support for pet owners navigating treatment options and end-of-life care for their beloved pets.
  • Essential scholarships and fellowships, the most powerful way to enable students’ financial wellness — in part by offsetting the substantial debt that may limit their horizons  — and to advance faculty expertise.
  • Public health programs and outreach that protect, improve, and promote population health by caring for the university and surrounding communities, sharing knowledge and research discoveries, and preparing the next generation of public health professionals and leaders through boots-on-the-ground activities in service to communities in need.
  • The fight against cancer. The Virginia Tech Animal Cancer Care and Research Center — part of the university’s growing Health Sciences Campus in Roanoke, Virginia — integrates comprehensive cancer care services for pets with translational research and health sciences degree programs involving the college and the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine and Fralin Biomedical Research Institute. Students are immersed in a best-in-class, multidisciplinary learning and research environment where, one day, a cure for cancer in both animals and humans may be discovered.
  • Expansive hands-on and remote learning in clinical programs that enables students to build skills and knowledge while advancing health and wellness for animals and the people who rely on them.

Together, we can confront barriers to wellness and create a healthier world for all.

Every donor makes a difference, and every dollar counts. Are you in?
