Honoring Bryan Slinker
After 11 years as dean, Bryan planned to step down at the end of 2019. But when WSU president Kirk Schulz called on him to serve WSU as the interim provost, Bryan readily agreed. He finished out his career at WSU as interim provost in July 2020.
When you support cancer care at the WSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital, you give hope to those who love their animals. The veterinary hospital currently needs a new Linear Accelerator (LINAC) to provide even more accurate and safe radiation treatment for animals with cancer.
Help students worry less about money and spend more time on their studies by supporting a student scholarship.
Giving to the College of Veterinary Medicine
There is a story behind every gift to the WSU College of Veterinary Medicine. A beloved animal’s life is saved from cancer. A scholarship makes veterinary school more affordable. A child’s life is saved because a dog in east Africa was vaccinated for rabies.
Today, more than ever, philanthropic support is vital for helping the College of Veterinary Medicine continue its long tradition of high quality veterinary education, research, and patient care. Generous gifts by individuals and organizations provide scholarships and fellowships, state-of-the-art equipment for teaching and research, funding for student clubs, and a variety of other important programs. Gifts of any size help the college provide our students with an exceptional education and help our faculty pursue research to benefit animals and humans around the globe.
Please consider a gift to support the College of Veterinary Medicine’s priorities below:
Veterinary Teaching Hospital Operating Endowment
Because of you, we save lives every day at WSU’s Veterinary
Teaching Hospital. Your gift helps a dog learn to walk again. A horse
receives surgery and go on to win another barrel race. Or you help save
a beloved animal’s life from cancer.

Margin of Excellence Fund
From a scientist needing a new piece of lab equipment that could lead to a breakthrough, or to the purchase of needed diagnostic equipment that might save a pet’s life, funds at the Dean’s discretion can be directed to when and where they are needed most. Discretionary funds help us meet unexpected challenges and react to critical opportunities. They help to recruit and retain the colleges best faculty minds, train graduate students to be the next generation, hire veterinary technicians, or meet other needs that may not be provided through other sources of funding. Gifts to the Margin of Excellence Fund provide continued support to our faculty, students, and outstanding programs in the college.
Rabies Free Africa Fund
Rabies is the deadliest zoonotic disease on the planet. Each year more than 60,000 people die from rabies and half are children under the age of 16. Rabies Free Africa, part of The Paul G. Allen School for Global Animal Health, is working to eliminate rabies with the goal of no humans deaths by 2030. Please join us in our efforts to eliminate rabies worldwide. Learn more about rabies
Humane Society Partnership Fund
The WSU College of Veterinary Medicine partners with local and regional humane societies to give our students an extraordinary educational opportunity during final year in school. The hands-on, practical experience better prepares WSU veterinary students to enter the workforce after graduation. Learn more about the partnership and about other Innovative Education.
School of Molecular Biosciences Development Fund
Donations made to the School of Molecular Bioscience’s general fund will help support the areas of greatest need as determined by the school’s director. Funds have been used to support travel to meetings, seminar speakers, the annual school retreat, and more.
