Expand the Vet Tech Program

Dr. Walker teaching classes

The UT Martin veterinary science program is the only public, four-year program of its kind in the State and currently enrolls approximately 20 new students each fall (total program enrollment of 80 students), with applications from an additional 200 students. An existing facility is ready to be renovated to expand classroom, laboratory, office space, and companion animal kennels.

 

With expanded classroom and laboratory space, the program capacity can be expanded by 20 additional students each fall until capacity. Title III funds will be used for renovation of the existing space, in phases, to support the expansion of this program. With the renovated space, the program will expand to meet the growing demand for Veterinary Science graduates.
