Strategic Plan

In September 2018, OSU College of Veterinary Medicine faculty, staff and students came together to identify specific strategies to advance the college and elevate the veterinary medicine profession. After many hours of discussion on mission and vision statements, core goals and values and defining objectives, the CVM Strategic Plan was born.
