Bryan Slinker, dean of the college

Message from the Dean

A great veterinary medical education demands great teachers and great facilities. But it also requires a diverse community of scholars—students, faculty, and staff—to educate well-rounded and knowledgeable professionals who will maximize their own potential and serve society well. The Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine has always offered these things, providing a place where you can learn and grow as a member of our community. Through the Washington–Idaho–Montana-Utah (WIMU) Regional Program we have expanded that commitment. We are proud of our collective campuses and facilities and especially of our faculty members. Faculty members—regardless of their university base—are here because they want to help you. Collectively we aim to prepare you to be the best veterinarian you can be, no matter which of the many roles of a veterinarian you aspire to fill. But why take my word for it? Please visit and see all this for yourself.

Dr. Bryan Slinker
Dean College of Veterinary Medicine
