The project will work to identify and address issues related to the quality of veterinary teaching by developing a digital platform to store educational resources and teaching tools for faculty across the world.

"Our team believes that better-prepared veterinarians will improve animal health and productivity, food security, and public health at the local, country, and regional levels and improve the quality of veterinary services globally," said Dr. Molly Lee, a veterinary specialist at the Center for Food Security and Public Health at Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine.

The project includes the CFSPH, the College of Veterinary Medicine and College of Public Health at The Ohio State University, and the School of Veterinary Science and Institute of Education at Massey University in New Zealand.
