Diversity Week 2021

April is Diversity Month which is an excellent time for the college to recognize and celebrate our rich cultures and populations. By celebrating the unique cultures, backgrounds, and traditions of our College of Pharmacy community, we can gain a greater appreciation for the diversity that surrounds us. Please join us for the inaugural College of Pharmacy Diversity Week, April 26-29, 2021.

Schedule of Events

Planned events include a discussion on what diversity means and why it strengthens us; gender equity in pharmacy and the pharmaceutical sciences; and health equity and ensuring access to COVID-19 vaccinations. We will close the week with a perspective from our students who are breaking the mold to make the College of Pharmacy a more diverse and stronger community.
