OKLAHOMA STATE UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF VETERINARY MEDICINE Winter, 1983 Volume 5, Number 1 The Dean Reflects Dear Friends and Colleagues: The past five years have been the most ex¬ citing in our College's history, with substantial in¬ creases in human and physical resources. Dur¬ ing this time, the annual operating budget has more than doubled, being $8,246,093 in fiscal year 1982-83. This is in addition to a $15,000,000 capital improvement program. The number of faculty members, instructor through full professor, has increased from 60 to 77. Several hold positions as officers or con¬ sultants with national, regional and state organiza¬ tions. The College now has twenty-three Board certified faculty in one of the clinical specialty areas. The magnificence of the Boren Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital and its equipment speaks for itself. Known as the "Gem of the Decade," it was the first major new building to be completed on this campus during the 1972-81 decade. During a period of declining extramural fund¬ ing support for research nationwide, our College has achieved a significant Increase in research funding. Our weekly television series about modern veterinary medicine continues to be well receiv¬ ed in conjunction with the James Herriot series which is now in its fourth and final presentation. Barbara and I were particularly happy to meet so many of you at our Alumni reception during the AVMA Convention in Salt Lake City last July Alumni interaction with our College has lead to a considerable increase in the number of alum¬ ni contributing financial support. This is especially important to us when we request funds from private foundations. We face the year 1983 with pride in our past achievements and great optimism that "the best is yet to be." Even though the economy of our State is not presently as vibrant as in recent years, we are confident that we can continue to main¬ tain progress towards excellence in teaching, research and extension. We thank you for your loyal support in the past and urge you to help us in every way you can to build our College into a truly outstanding institution. A very prosperous and happy New Year to all of you from all of us. Sincerely, Patrick M. Morgan, D.V.M., Dr.P.H.
