We’re proud and humbled to be recognized as one of the very best veterinary schools in the world, and we’re pleased to help represent overall excellence in teaching, research, outreach and clinical services at Colorado State. Veterinary medicine has a central role in supporting the health of livestock, horses, wildlife and pets, animals that are essential to our lives and livelihoods. Our profession has a critical role in improving the health of animals, people and the environment. It is exciting to see the impact our college makes in so many ways and in so many places - Dr. Mark Stetter/veterinarian and dean of CSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.
