Taking the Next Steps

Published on 01 May 2017

St. Louis College of Pharmacy is rooted in a history of leadership in pharmacy and health care education. For more than 150 years, alumni and friends of the College have left their mark and created a legacy of dedication and innovation. Nourished by the commitment of the pharmacy pioneers who came before, the College’s roots continue to provide a strong foundation for future growth and transformational change.

Several years ago, the College embarked on a campaign to transform STLCOP from a great college into a leading, internationally recognized institution, maximizing the value of a STLCOP degree for past, present and future students. On Thursday, Nov. 10, 2016, members of the College community from across the country and around the world gathered to take the next step and kick off the public phase of the Preparing Leaders. Leading Change. campaign.

Alumni and friends of the College were brought together on campus, at satellite events hosted by key campaign ambassadors across the country, and through a virtual, web-based event. In celebration of this milestone, we premiered our special launch video, featuring current students and alumni who shared stories of how the College and the generous support of our donors has shaped and continues to shape their lives.

Today, we find ourselves in a time of great change within health care and higher education, and key decisions are being made. Together, through the Preparing Leaders. Leading Change. campaign, we will leverage our history and legacy of leadership in the profession to exercise a strong voice in the broader health care conversation.

From mutually beneficial partnerships with other institutions to investing in academic and research centers where students work with faculty researchers to build foundational skills, the College is dedicated to building a future that honors our past as we reach toward our potential. Join us as we define the future of pharmacy education.
