Multicultural Perspectives and Initiatives

diversity banner

The goals of this website are to:

Educate the members of the profession and the students coming into the profession about the value of racial and ethnic diversity and the need to understand and incorporate the strengths of differing worldviews that various groups bring with them.

Provide students of all ethnicities currently in veterinary medical education an opportunity to enhance their understanding of the impact that changing demographics and cultural perspectives will have on their future professional life and the way they serve as veterinarians. 

Build on the examples of success and outstanding service rendered the profession by veterinarians of color in all aspects of veterinary medicine.

Recall and build upon the role the KSUCVM and other colleges of veterinary medicine, The Tuskegee School of Veterinary Medicine included, have had in furthering the contributions of under-represented minority veterinarians.
