COLLEGE STATION — The Texas A&M University System Board of Regents has approved a $120 million classroom building and small animal hospital expansion project for the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medical & Biomedical Sciences (CVM) in College Station, Texas.

“Our goal is to build a premier teaching and research facility that complements our world-class faculty in the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and the far-ranging impact they have on both animal and human health,” said R. Bowen Loftin, president of Texas A&M, in a prepared statement.

“At this point, the building will be one of the largest construction projects in the history of the university, which speaks volumes about the importance veterinary medicine plays in our state’s economy, as well as in our daily lives.”

The new building will include a state-of-the-art classroom and teaching laboratory space, which will provide opportunities for innovations in teaching and will nurture collaboration and creativity.  The administrative team of the CVM will begin the planning and design process with a completion date to be predicted in the near future.

Funding will be provided solely from the Permanent University Fund, which was established in the Texas Constitution in 1876 as a public endowment contributing to the support of the institutions of the Texas A&M and University of Texas systems.

“The new facility represents a tremendous opportunity to bring the latest in teaching technology to the CVM and to Texas A&M University,” said Dr. Eleanor Green, Carl King dean of veterinary medicine, in a prepared statement.

“We are very excited that the Board of Regents and the administration of Texas A&M University have decided to invest in the future of our college, our faculty and our students. The impact of having state-of-the-art teaching and clinical facilities will be felt not only by those who receive their education here in the future, but also by those that we serve.”
