DIVERSITY MISSION STATEMENT

North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine strives to be the premiere institution for training and preparing future leaders in veterinary medicine and research sciences.  We are committed to excellence. Diversity and inclusion are vital to our goal. We recognize that a diverse community generates diverse thought necessary to successfully create relevant and effective solutions to complex challenges. We choose to be a culture that values diversity, inclusion, respect, empathy and equality for all.

Diversity at North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine is defined as the active incorporation throughout our college of people from various backgrounds, perspectives, thoughts and beliefs.  Diversity is not limited to race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, age or physical ability but rather represents the wide range of visible and invisible differences and similarities that make each of us unique.

Inclusion at North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine is defined as the practice of intentionally building a culture that values diversity of people and ideas and embraces the meaningful participation of all.

At North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine it is our vision that the positive lessons of valuing diversity and inclusion will extend well beyond our college community and have broader far reaching impacts on the future profession of veterinary medicine.
