Historical Note

The first course in veterinary medicine was taught at Michigan Agricultural College (now Michigan State University) in 1884, although the Veterinary Division was not officially authorized until 1909. In 1910, the Division became the Veterinary Science/Veterinary Medicine Division, and from 1944 to 1955, it was the School of Veterinary Medicine. It became the Veterinary Medicine College in 1956, the same year in which its administrative responsibility was shifted from the President to the Provost/Vice President for Academic Affairs.
