Veterinary science has been part of MSU's curriculum since the institution's founding in 1855. In 1910, the College of Veterinary Medicine was formally established as a four-year, degree-granting program. Today, the college includes four biomedical science departments, two clinical departments, two service units; and several research centers. There are about 3500 faculty and staff members and about 600 students. The College of Veterinary Medicine uses Novell GroupWise as its collaboration system. Until recently, they were relying on open source products for spam control, but with the ever-increasing volume of spam attacks and other internet-borne threats, in 2007 the IT Department made the decision to switch to the M+Guardian security gateway from Messaging Architects.
