The Alumni Association of the School of Pharmacy exists to promote a continuing alumni interest in the School and its students by supporting its aims, ideas and purpose. It helps with fundraising, participates in and organizes programs, lectures, and awards. It works with the School's administration to coordinate alumni and student activities such as reunions, CE programs and meetings. The Association not only supports the School, it keeps classmates in touch.
The Association maintains an active presence with its alumni and students. Realizing that students become alumni, one of the primary goals of the Association is to encourage student interest and awareness of the Association before graduation. Throughout the year, the Association Officers meet with students from each class year, to introduce the Association and its mission. Students are invited to attend the Association meetings and to interact with its members. Officers distribute School recognition items to students, support their activities which include fundraising and networking for special projects throughout the year. The Association initiated and sponsors The Student Health Care Professional Award for a third-year student in recognition of academic achievements and leadership qualities.
Another goal of the Association is to bring alumni back to the School, to encourage interest in current activities and to increase alumni financial support. The Association sponsors the Sprowls' Lecture and nominates recipients for the Certificate of Honor and The Distinguished Pharmacist Practitioner Award. These awards honor distinguished colleagues and instill pride in our alumni. Officers represent the School at national professional meetings, attend graduation and School events. The Association maintains a strong relationship with the School and promotes awareness of its activities beyond its classrooms.
