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 110 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, the “home away from home” for WSU alumni.

The acclaimed Advance (formerly 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.
