To celebrate the beginning of a new chapter in veterinary medicine for Texas, administrators from the Texas A&M University System, Texas A&M University, and the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM) broke ground for the new Veterinary & Biomedical Education Complex. The capital project represents a major expansion for the CVM and will also be one of the largest construction projects on the Texas A&M campus.
“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, the Carl B. King Dean of Veterinary Medicine. “We are very excited that the Board of Regents and the administration of Texas A&M University 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.”
The $120 million needed for completion of both facilities will be funded solely from the Permanent University Fund (PUF), which was established in the Texas Constitution of 1876 as a public endowment contributing to the support of the institutions of the Texas A&M and University of Texas Systems.
“我们想设计一个不仅满足我们现在的需求的建筑，而且可能在未来50年内满足我们的教育需求。 2016年，我们将庆祝我们的100周年，“格林说。 “我们将进入新世纪的新设施。”
