• Offering the world’s first courses in animal and veterinary medicine ethics

This may be the greatest contribution CSU has made to animal welfare. Dr. Bernie Rollin's pioneering work in veterinary ethics challenged the hide-bound, often inhumane, inertia of veterinary education and approaches to treatment. Once he asked the Qs, change was inevitable because there simply were no good answers. Of course, that couldn't have happened without a receptive Administration that supported his groundbreaking work.

So, four paws way up for CSU and Dr Rollin!
