Since Leslie Dan’s transformational gift in 2001, The Faculty of Pharmacy has grown from a small village into a vibrant city. Undergraduate enrolment has doubled, graduate enrolment has tripled and the number of Faculty members has doubled. Together with colleagues in pharmacology, our Faculty members out-publish every university in Canada and all public universities in North America. Only Harvard, a private university, publishes more.
These statistics are impressive, but in today’s changing pharmacy environment, it is vital to keep moving forward. Our campaign will ensure this by creating opportunities to respond quickly to industry, student demand and opportunities for innovation. It will enhance our cutting-edge educational programs; advance research that addresses issues relevant to modern drug therapy, discovery and delivery; and build on our commitment to life-long learning. Our campaign will also develop programs and services that enhance the scope of practice and ultimately, the role of the pharmacist in the health care system.
