"The current ranking is further evidence of the strength of the "hands-on" approach and dynamic faculty that are hallmarks of the SUNY Delhi Veterinary Technology Program," said Bret Meckel, Dean of the School of Applied and Veterinary Sciences.
The Best Colleges cited SUNY Delhi's high ranking as a result of the college's excellent facilities that offer hands-on education with companion, lab, and farm animals. The guide also pointed out that students receive on-the-job training during required preceptorships and that special educational opportunities include working with shelter animals, raising "Guiding Eyes for the Blind" puppies on campus, special electives, and a wildlife management study abroad program in South Africa.
Established in 1961, SUNY Delhi's Veterinary Science Technology Program (AAS) was the first program of its type in the United States.
