Dean’s Leadership Council

In 2014, past dean  Julie Johnson created the Dean’s Leadership Council to be composed of two different subcommittees: The Professional Advisory Committee and the Philanthropy Committee. The Dean’s Leadership Council is a representative group of alumni and friends of the college that will take on a leadership role in helping support the college both academically and charitably. Members from each committee will meet twice a year and will participate in conference calls as well.

The Pharmacy Professional Advisory Committee is chaired by Dr. John Gums, interim dean and associate dean for clinical and administrative affairs. Members are leaders in the pharmacy profession with a strong pulse on the profession. The role of the committee will be to advise college leadership on changes for curriculum and in the profession as a whole, while advocating for the college during their two or three-year term.

The Philanthropy Committee is chaired by Elizabeth Zipper, Director of Development and Alumni Affairs. Members are annual donors to the college and will assist in helping the college attract potential donors during their three-year term. These members are an essential resource for the Development office.
