Office: 919.513.6242

Allen Cannedy, director of diversity and multicultural affairs, is a dedicated mentor and recruiter of students from groups that are underrepresented in veterinary medicine. For example, he regularly invites pre-college aged students to shadow him as he makes patient calls during his personal practice.

The commitment to mentoring and recruiting has been a hallmark of Cannedy’s career. His work with the University has resulted in many students from a variety of cultural backgrounds and from both in-state and out-of-state colleges and universities coming here, whether they are first-year veterinary students, interns, or residents getting a final year of clinical experience before entering into their careers.
