Veterinarians Without Borders

Public Profile

About This Organization

Abbreviation(s):
Vets Without Borders
Purpose:
The primary mission of this chapter will be to provide veterinary exposure to Texas A&M students through international trips and local volunteering opportunities. Such volunteer activities will promote animal welfare within the Bryan/ College Station area, while exemplifying the Aggie value of Selfless Service. Our international trips are designed to provide exposure in veterinary medicine and animal husbandry for our members while abroad. We also aim to expand the professional network of students through guest speakers, lectures, and seminars on campus. In general, the Texas A&M Branch of Veterinarians without Borders looks to further the professional goals of our pre-veterinary students, while benefiting both animals and the community locally and abroad.
