The administration of the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM) is working diligently to enhance the learning environment through initiatives designed to increase the diversity of faculty, staff, and students. These initiatives have been integrated with the overall diversity efforts of the university and have placed the CVM in a leadership role in this area.

With all the programs that we have implemented in the last two years, our statistics are showing movement in the right direction. Statistics aren’t the definitive answer to all our questions and we don’t take causality for granted, but we are inspired in the year to come.

While trying to continue a culture of inclusion and diversity excellence in 2015, the CVM chose 4 specific areas to intentionally address:

  1. Comprehensive training programs for faculty, staff, administration and students
  2. Wellness awareness and support for individuals with visible and invisible disabilities or special needs
  3. Enhanced recruitment efforts for underrepresented minority (URM) students
  4. Celebrating climate and diversity accomplishments of faculty, staff, and students as they serve the public within the state of Texas. We hope to share our progress in these and other areas through this report.
