    Made Possible by Collaboration

    A-State Vets for Arkansas was the message from Chancellor Todd Shields as Arkansas State provided an update on its plans to open its College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM).

College of Veterinary Medicine

Targeted Opening Date: Fall 2026

Arkansas State University plans to create a College of Veterinary Medicine to serve the needs of our state and region. From A-State’s founding in 1909, the university has been an integral part of the agricultural fabric of the greater Delta region. The veterinary medicine project brings together the uniquely positioned resources of A-State with a distinct and growing need for practitioners.

Fulfilling the Dreams of Numerous Arkansans

In a state currently without a College of Veterinary Medicine, the A-State project can fulfill the dreams of numerous Arkansans who wish to stay home for their education as well as attract students from out-of-state. As with medical school graduates, there is a strong correlation between where a DVM receives their education and training and where they establish their practice.
