Strategic Plan

Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges


STRATEGIC PLAN

 
For almost 50 years, the Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC) has shaped the future of veterinary medicine by planning for change and achievement. Founded in 1966, the AAVMC has helped academic veterinary medicine foster remarkable advancements in the profession.

Strategic planning has been a key part of this success, and it has never been more important than it is today. Disruptive changes in technology and culture, changing consumer behavior, rising educational costs, and powerful economic stressors are creating one of the most turbulent operating environments in the history of veterinary medicine and the academic institutions that support it.

With that dynamic environment in mind, AAVMC has developed a new strategic plan that focuses on optimizing resources, flexibility and decisive action while preserving the association’s core values and mission. The new plan builds on core strengths of data, advocacy, and catalyzing and convening. It also positions the AAVMC to successfully adapt to rapid change while remaining in strategic alignment with the needs of its stakeholders and its operating environment.
