The Department of Animal Sciences, with strong roots in the Land Grant tradition, has as its mission “to improve the health and well-being of animals, including humans, through integration of teaching, research, and outreach.” Our department aspires to be a global leader in training the next generation of scholars in the areas of comparative endocrinology and integrative physiology, equine science, and companion and laboratory animal science.
