Penn Alumni Veterinarians for Equity & Diversity


The goal of PAVED (Penn Alumni Veterinarians for Equity and Diversity) is to create a network of alumni who identify as underrepresented minorities and wish to build a community, develop support systems, and provide opportunities to create connections among alumni and students.

Partnering with Alumni Relations, PAVED aims to engage more alumni volunteers that reflect Penn Vet’s diverse alumni population, while also identifying leaders who can share a wide range of experiences and knowledge as veterinary professionals.

PAVED collaborates with a variety of people and organizations at Penn Vet including VOICE, the Diversity Council, Career Services and more for programs and events where alumni can contribute to understanding and appreciating diversity as a priority in veterinary medicine.

If you are interested in getting more involved with PAVED, contact Alumni Relations at
