Parents and Partners Dean's Circle (PPCD)

The Carlson College of Veterinary Medicine (CCVM) has formed a new group, called the Parents and Partners Dean’s Circle (PPCD), for parents or partners of all current students who share a commitment to providing an excellent veterinary education that optimizes the wellness and success of students.

Leaders at the CCVM will look to Circle partners to provide insight and unique perspectives into the student experience of our students as well as engagement strategies for the CCVM that lead to increased access to a veterinary education to all, regardless of financial means and background.

Our goal is to facilitate communication between student families and leadership at the CCVM.

To join, members will make a contribution of at least $1200 annually to the CCVM. The commitment can be made in one payment or in monthly increments. Member contributions will be used to fund additional scholarships for veterinary students. Contributions are tax deductible as allowed by law.

Pet Memorial Program

Companion animals give us unbounded love, good humor, and patience. When you lose a pet, you lose a special friend. The Pet Memorial Program at OSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine has a new website that allows pet owners to honor their animal friends in a meaningful way, by supporting scholarships for veterinary students.

You can use our new website to honor the memory of a pet with a photo, or even a story about them. At the same time, you can donate to veterinary student scholarships:
