University Statement Regarding the Commonwealth’s Funding Approval for Penn Vet
The General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has restored funding to the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, and Governor Wolf has signed it into law. This outcome was aided by the support and advocacy of many, particularly by longstanding partners at the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau and Penn Ag Industries.
Penn Vet has a long history of working with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, enabling the School to protect the food supply for 12 million Pennsylvanians, contribute to the success of the statewide agriculture community and support public health through infectious disease control programs.
State support for Penn Vet has provided a tremendous return on investment for taxpayers, ensuring their food supply is among the safest in the world.
