Diversity

Enhancing Diversity in the Veterinary Profession

Diversity Committee

Developing a professional veterinary medical workforce that is more reflective of the diverse tapestry of ethnic, racial, and underrepresented and disadvantaged groups that characterize modern society has been a core goal of the AAVMC for more than 30 years.

The AAVMC has been a pioneering leader in promoting diversity for the entire veterinary medical profession. Substantial progress has been achieved through innovative programs such as DiVersity Matters.

However, much more work needs to be done in order to ensure the viability of diverse, inclusive environments on the campuses of our member institutions and throughout the profession.

The AAVMC works to actively achieve success in this area by supporting programs that encourage the recruitment and retention of underrepresented students, staff, and faculty on our campuses. The AAVMC also seeks to educate all stakeholders about the enduring value of inclusive environments.
