Grad Students Take Oath During Second Annual Ceremony
Posted August 24, 2017
Master’s and doctoral students in the Texas
A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences
(CVM) reaffirmed their commitment to their work and their promise
to uphold the highest professional standards during the second
annual Graduate Student Oath Ceremony on Thursday, Aug. 24.
During the event, held at The Stella Hotel in Bryan, students
received their white laboratory coat and an engraved magnetic CVM
name tag before reciting the graduate student oath as a group.
Developed last year, the oath incorporates the Aggie core values
of Excellence, Integrity, Leadership, Loyalty, Respect, and
Selfless Service with values of professionalism through ethical
behavior and scholarship in biomedical research.
Current Master of Science thesis and PhD students who were
unable to participate last year also joined in the festivities,
which included a reception and dinner.
The embroidered laboratory coat symbolizes students’ official
entry into training as a laboratory scientist, and the name tag
fosters recognition of their unique identity and contributions to
the CVM research enterprise.
