Fact Book and Background Information

The Institutional Research and Assessment Committee (IRAC) of St. Louis College of Pharmacy (STLCOP) is pleased to present the 2010 edition of the Institutional Fact Book. The fact book is intended to serve as an accurate, valid, and consistent source of information on many aspects of life at the College.

Several changes have been made to the 2010 fact book to provide a more complete and accurate portrait of the College. As one example, many charts and figures include the data presented in the 2009 edition of the fact book as well as the information for 2010. Additionally, values of variables have been added to the charts. Finally, the scope of the fact book has been expanded to include data on research, scholarship, and creative activity engaged in by faculty and students.

The preparation of the fact book involves the cooperation of many different individuals in the College community. We are grateful for the continued cooperation and assistance provided by these individuals, particularly those listed on the acknowledgements page.

Each year, a new edition of the fact book is planned, expanding on information currently provided, and incorporating new information relevant to members of the College community. In this way, the fact book will continue to develop, grow, and become an indispensible tool of the College. In this spirit, we invite suggestions to modify or improve the fact book at IRAC@stlcop.edu.
