Join VOICE - Veterinary Students as One In Culture and Ethnicity
To best serve the needs of our community, our profession must embrace the broadest definition and fullest spectrum of diversity including racial, ethnic, religious, gender, sexual orientation-identity, socioeconomic, geographical background, work, military, and educational experiences, and challenges in life that have been overcome.

At Ohio State, we understand that diversity promotes a culture of inclusion that understands and appreciates the world beyond our own individual perspective. For the College of Veterinary Medicine, diversity is a fundamental component of excellence and, as such, is not optional, but rather is both necessary and desired.  

Dr. Mary Jo Burkhard


Our college exists to benefit society and enhance the well-being of animals and people. Our vision is to be the nation’s best veterinary and comparative learning community.
The College of Veterinary Medicine is pleased to recognize 36 students, faculty, and staff as achieving Partner Level in the inaugural year of the Community of Inclusion Certificate Program.
