The AAVMC has provided $10,000 in matching funds for faculty and staff at AAVMC member institutions to complete Purdue’s Certificate Programs for Diversity and Inclusion in Veterinary Medicine. Upon payment of $500 to support participation of one faculty and staff pair, AAVMC scholarship funds will support a second faculty and staff pair. Scholarships will be awarded on a first come, first served basis until funds are exhausted. Deans can enroll their two faculty and two staff members using this form.
The AVMA Board of Directors has provided $13,500 in support of students to complete Purdue's Student Certificate Program for Diversity and Inclusion in Veterinary Medicine. Four veterinary medical students from each of the U.S. Colleges/Schools of Veterinary Medicine can participate in the program for free. Students will have one year to complete their certificate. Aggregate impact measures will be collected by Purdue Veterinary Medicine and the AVMA Deans can enroll their student awardees using this form.
Currently, 29 of the 30 U.S. Colleges/Schools of veterinary medicine have Inclusiveness Champions that are liaisons to our Center. U.S. Colleges/Schools of veterinary medicine with 10 faculty members and 10 students completing the certificate program are eligible to become Center Partners.
