Veterinary Development & External Relations
The Veterinary Development
and External Relations (VDER) office
provides an essential link between the
College of Veterinary Medicine, alumni, and
friends of the college. Our office
coordinates college fund raising and
development efforts, encourages corporate
partnerships, and keeps alumni and other
friends connected to the college.
Established in 1899,
Washington State University’s College of
Veterinary Medicine is proud of its
distinguished past and is among the oldest
veterinary colleges in the United States.
Since the first class of graduates over 100
years ago, alumni of the college have
assumed leadership roles in industry,
government, and their individual
communities. Our graduates have played a key
part in the economic and social development
of the Pacific Northwest and worldwide.
Services and information are
available to our alumni through the
WSU Alumni Association
which is housed in the
Lewis Alumni Centre
“home away from home” for WSU alumni.
The acclaimed WSU Veterinary Executive Report
is available online. This respected newsletter, which comes out
three times a year, keeps alumni and friends up-to-date on the
most pressing issues facing the college, current research and
animal care programs, and alumni events.
