The Emerging LMU-College of Veterinary Medicine
The LMU-CVM was granted a Letter of Reasonable Assurance from the American Veterinary Medical Association Council on Education (AVMA COE) on July 2, 2013. Reasonable Assurance is the classification granted to an educational institution seeking initial accreditation. A letter is granted to an educational institution indicating that there is reasonable assurance of future accreditation of a developing college of veterinary medicine in the US or Canada, if such a college is established according to plans presented to the Council, and if these plans demonstrate intent and a realistic plan to comply with the Standards of Accreditation. The Letter of Reasonable Assurance enables the CVM to move forward toward COE provisional accreditation in the Fall 2014 with the acceptance of its first class of 85 students and with the target of full accreditation in 2018 at the time of the first LMU-CVM class graduation.
