Dear alumni, students, donors, and friends,
Spring has arrived in Ann Arbor and we have a great deal to celebrate at the U-M College of Pharmacy. We recently held our 151st commencement ceremonies, where we marked the achievements of 84 PharmD, 29 PhD, and 21 BSPS graduates. Additionally, 24 residents completed their training at the College and Michigan Medicine. Honors were extended to Dr. Mustapha Beleh, our 2019 Teaching Excellence Award winner, and Drs. Frank Ascione and Patricia Jahns Bush, our 2019 Distinguished Alumni Lifetime Achievement Award winners.
These celebrations were almost immediately followed by news that the Regents of the University of Michigan approved a new $121 million, 130,000 square foot building for the College that will built on the corner of East Huron Street and Glen Avenue. This new facility will be an absolute game changer for the College, allowing us to upgrade our teaching and research facilities and placing us a short 5 minute walk to the medical complex. We are also excited to welcome back the national office of Rho Chi Society to Michigan this summer, almost 100 years after it was founded in our College. These notable accomplishments, which you will read about below, are among the many reasons why the U-M College of Pharmacy remains home to the leaders and best in pharmacy.
Have a great summer and Go Blue!
Dean Jim Dalton
