Utah State University will create a new College of Veterinary Medicine following a commitment by the Utah Legislature to provide significant ongoing state funding for what will be the first school of its kind in the state. The new college will help ease the shortage of veterinarians in the state and region, bolster the state’s growing life sciences technology sector, and partner with veterinarians in communities throughout the state.

“It is now time for USU to address the growing shortage of veterinarians in our state, particularly in rural areas,” said USU President Noelle E. Cockett.
