University of Arizona to open veterinary school in 2015

TUCSON, Ariz. -- University of Arizona officials have announced plans to start a veterinary medical school supported by private funds.

The Arizona Daily Star reported Saturday that a $9 million endowment from the Kemper and Ethel Marley Foundation will go toward establishing a veterinary school in 2015.

College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Dean Shane Burgess said students will be able to pursue veterinary medical degrees in a shorter time at a lower cost.

Burgess said $3 million will go toward buying or adapting facilities across the state for veterinary training.

The school had previously requested funding from the state for a school after the Arizona Board of Regents approved the concept.

But lawmakers passed on the proposal.
