is occurring in our class size and in our facilities.
Beginning with the class of 2015, class enrollment increases from 95 students to 120. Additional students
will be nonresident / non-contract from states other than Alabama, Kentucky, and West Virginia. Admitting
more students with different backgrounds adds to the experience of the entire student body.
In addition to the growth in class size, construction is beginning on the new Small Animal Teaching Hospital
and Educational Wing. Phase one of the project will include three auditorium-style lecture rooms and 15
The new small animal teaching hospital – to be built following completion of the educational wing – will
offer the latest in veterinary technology and health care delivery. The state-of-the-art facility, expected to
open in 2014, will enhance the educational experience of veterinary students and those receiving postgraduate specialty training while offering the most advanced veterinary care available to our clients.
The college built the current small animal teaching hospital in 1970 and expanded the structure in 1989.
Thousands of animal lives have been saved in this facility and who can gauge its impact on the 3500
veterinary students who trained here prior to graduation?
Growth - frustration, satisfaction, exhilaration - we anticipate experiencing all of these within the next few
years. At Auburn, change is exciting – we almost can’t wait. Join us, as we prepare for the future.
Over the course of its 122-year history, the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine has produced 6,428 veterinarians and over 500 specialists and researchers. Auburn is the 7th oldest college of veterinary medicine in North America and was the first in the southeastern United States. Alumni are scattered throughout all 50 states and many nations. In 1949, Dr. Redding S. Sugg, the third Dean of the College, helped found the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB). This was the first regional education program in the United States that offered veterinary education programs to neighboring states, and is the reason that Auburn veterinarians are prevalent throughout the Southeast. Auburn is proud of its ongoing 64-year partnership in veterinary education with the Commonwealth of Kentucky through the SREB agreement.
The mission of the College of Veterinary Medicine is to prepare individuals for careers of excellence in veterinary medicine, including private and public practice, industrial medicine, academics, and research, and to provide programs of instruction, research, outreach, and service that are in the best interests of the citizens of the State of Alabama, the region, the nation, and the world.
The College is devoted to three strategic goals: (1) enhance student success; (2) promote discovery; and (3) practice the highest standards of veterinary medicine.
