Why work here?

Improving the health of animals, people, and the planet has been central to our land-grant mission since 1879, when the first veterinary classes began at Colorado Agricultural College. Today, that vision remains at the heart of the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, as we aim to lead the world in education, research, outreach, and service that transforms animal and human health.


Educating the next generation of leaders happens in the classroom, in the lab, and on the clinic floor.

Undergraduate, professional, and graduate courses of study are offered, spanning four departments: clinical sciences; biomedical sciences; environmental and radiological health sciences; and microbiology, immunology, and pathology. The college is home to one of the top veterinary schools in the country and for several decades the program has been ranked in the top three by U.S. News and World Report.


Our world-renowned expertise in life sciences is rooted in collaboration. Our “team science” approach means we seek out connections - with fellow researchers worldwide and with foundation, corporate, and agency partners - that make our science stronger.


Our teaching, research, and service impacts the lives of those in northern Colorado and beyond. We provide access to our expertise in health and medicine through educational events and activities for K-12 students on campus, in schools, and at CSU Spur.
