The Lincoln Memorial University College of Veterinary Medicine is seeking to identify, recruit, and enroll qualified students who are likely to succeed in the professional curriculum and become successful veterinarians.
Lincoln Memorial University (LMU) was founded in 1897 to honor of the commitment of Abraham Lincoln’s 1863 request to organize a university for the people of the Cumberland Gap area. The University’s mission to advance life in the Cumberland Gap area and the Appalachian region with its teaching, research, and service activities is accomplished by making educational and research opportunities available to students where they live. Providing an accessible and affordable veterinary medical education to qualified students in the Appalachian region is a key component to the mission of the LMU-College of Veterinary Medicine.
