    SAVMA chapter nominated for UMN excellence award

The University of Minnesota (UMN) Student American Veterinary Medical Association (SAVMA) Chapter is a nominee for a 2023 Tony Diggs Excellence Award.

The chapter is nominated for an award in the “Excellence in Health and Wellness” category, which recognizes groups that have an outstanding impact on the health and wellness of its members and/or community at large.

SAVMA works to support, empower, and inspire all veterinary students to improve their lives, education, and careers. The UMN chapter is active in community philanthropic efforts—such as the Hoof N Woof 5K—offers student externship and travel grants, hosts informative lunch seminars, plans social events, and supports student camaraderie.

The award ceremony will take place on Thursday, April 11 from 5–8 p.m. in the Mississippi Room on the third floor of Coffman Memorial Union on the UMN East Bank.

In honor of Tony Diggs, former director of the Student Activities Office, the awards are intended to recognize annual student group achievements across the entirety of the University of Minnesota. The awards are open to all Campus Life programs and registered student organizations.
