The Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech has named Carling Sitterley, DVM, as assistant director of admissions and student services. As such, Dr. Sitterley will support the college’s admissions and recruitment efforts, provide mentorship and advising to student organizations and coordinate other activities, such as a veterinary science summer camp for underrepresented students.

“We are excited to have Dr. Carling Sitterley join our team,” said Jacque Pelzer, DVM, director of admissions and student services. “As a recent graduate of the college, Dr. Sitterley is committed to diversity and inclusion and brings a fresh perspective of the needs in the areas of student support and service.”

Sitterley founded the college’s chapter of Veterinary Students as One in Culture and Ethnicity, a student-run organization that provides education and outreach around diversity issues in the veterinary community. Most recently, she worked as a project assistant for the college’s Center for Public and Corporate Veterinary Medicine, where she supported a brucellosis control program in the Caucasus, and for Virginia Tech’s Office of Multicultural Programs and Services, now the Intercultural Engagement Center, where she helped develop a peer education program.
