All campus chapters of Pride SVMC or VOICE are independent entities that fall under university rules and regulations. The national Pride SVMC board helps guide individual chapters through offering chapter grants and hosting the Pride SVMC Annual Meeting at the SAVMA Symposium.
We thank you for your interest and hope you will help us to create an inclusive academic veterinary community where sharing experiences and educational opportunities inspire community engagement and equity so that LGBTQ+ people and allies are able to contribute to and thrive within a diverse veterinary profession.
Be sure to check out our Grants page under Resources for current student grant opportunities.
We maintain a private Facebook page (Pride SVMC) for LGBTQ+ veterinary students.
