The Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine recently hosted the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education.

Present at the tour was Chair Jeff Hickman, along with regents Dennis Casey, Jay Hem, Ann Holloway, Joseph L. Parker, Jack Sherry, Steven Taylor, Courtney Warmington and Chancellor Allison Garrett. Accompanying the regents was Dr. Jeanette Mendez, provost and senior vice president at OSU.

As part of a two-day visit to the OSU-Stillwater campus, the regents visited the veterinary college to learn more about the outstanding education, research and essential services the college provides to the state and beyond.

Dr. Carlos Risco, dean, gave a brief presentation about the CVM and the state of veterinary medicine in United States. He shared the college’s mission, goals and successes, as well as its challenges.

Dr. Jerry Malayer, associate dean of research at the CVM, then spoke about the first-rate research that takes place in the college and the
global impact it has.

“The CVM will continue to graduate careerready veterinarians and perform cutting-edge research,” Risco said. “We will continue to
advocate for our students, faculty, staff and the future of veterinary medicine.”

Following the presentation, the group took a tour of the OSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital, led by Dr. Dan Burba, head of the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences.

“We enjoyed hosting the regents,” Risco said. “We appreciate their time and interest in the CVM and hope to host them again in the future.”
