A Message from the Dean

Dr. James K. Drennen, III., Dean, School of Pharmacy
As we approach this centennial celebration, I am filled with pride reflecting on our legacy of excellence in pharmacy education, research, and service. Since our founding in 1925, the School of Pharmacy has prepared generations of pharmacists to be community leaders and empowered pharmacists. For 100 years, our students have been advancing patient care and improving health outcomes. It’s easy to see the significant impact that our graduates have made to the profession in the last century. The School of Pharmacy has fostered a culture of innovation and discovery by embracing new technologies and approaches to pharmacy practice. 

Throughout the 2024-2025 academic year, we will reflect on our history, celebrate our achievements, and plan the future of the School of Pharmacy. Be sure to mark your calendars for April 4-5, 2025, when we will host a weekend-long celebration on campus for alumni, students, and friends of the School of Pharmacy. Together, we will make this a successful year of fundraising and celebration as we set the stage for the next century of excellence in pharmacy.
