Office of the Dean

Dean Ralph Richardson, DVMWelcome to our college. On behalf of our faculty, staff and students, I hope that your "virtual visit" will be enjoyable and that you will find the information that you seek. Whether you are simply surfing the net or have sought us out for a specific purpose, we want you to experience K-State Hospitality at its best. If you need help, don't hesitate to let us know.

We believe that Kansas State University offers some very special opportunities. Our students are known for their work ethic, balance on life, and abilities to enter a diversity of veterinary careers. Our faculty and staff are hard working and have high expectations in their teaching, research and service functions. Our facilities are among the finest in the country and provide an ideal setting for an excellent learning and research environment. The town of Manhattan is nestled in a river valley among the Flint Hills of Kansas, a setting that is steeped with midwestern history and supportive of an enjoyable lifestyle. Check out the many links to the web pages of the College of Veterinary Medicine and Kansas State University. I think you'll be pleased with the opportunities that you find. If you're looking for a great place to learn, work, live or simply gather information, you've found the right place!!

Best wishes.

Ralph C. Richardson, DVM
