Veterinarians as One Inclusive Community for Empowerment (VOICE)
VOICE is a student-run organization that seeks to increase awareness of, respect for, and sensitivity to diversity among all individuals and communities in the field of veterinary medicine. In its celebration of diversity, VOICE seeks to foster a campus environment where all feel welcome and empowered to succeed. In emphasizing the importance of sociocultural awareness beyond the scope of the current core veterinary curriculum, VOICE hopes both to pave the way toward a more diverse professional community and to enhance our profession’s ability to meet the needs of our diversifying clientele.
The UMN chapter of VOICE was founded in 2016. In 2017, this chapter also committed to Broad Spectrum Veterinary Student Association’s vision of an inclusive veterinary community in which LGBTQ+ people and allies can thrive within our diverse profession.
