Exceptional Education

Cummings School will be a dynamic learning environment providing accessible education that prepares students and advanced trainees to collectively have a profound impact in veterinary medicine and One Health.

Education is at the heart of Cummings School. We are committed to creating a dynamic learning environment where all students and advanced trainees acquire knowledge, confidence, competence, creativity, and professional skills. We seek diversity, inclusiveness, and a sense of belonging for all members of our community, and recognize all our students as valued individuals who have the right to an excellent and equitable education.

Our strategic priorities include:

  • Offering innovative curricula and ways of teaching and learning.
  • Creating an environment where students can be active participants in leading their own education and professional development.
  • Having a learning environment that supports and protects the mental health of students.
  • Establishing new teaching and congregation spaces that support expanded class sizes for our DVM and graduate programs.
