The AAVMC has provided matching funds for faculty, staff, interns, and residents at member institutions to complete Purdue’s Certificate for Diversity and Inclusion in Veterinary Medicine. Pay full price for one registration and get a second one for free. Registrant pairs must fall into the same category (faculty, staff, or intern/resident) and be registered at the same time.
The AVMA Board of Directors has provided $14,400 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 Colleges/Schools of Veterinary Medicine represented in the SAVMA House of Delegates 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. 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. Private industry, Practices, and Government Organizations are also eligible for partnership. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
