The College of Pharmacy currently has two main philanthropic goals, the Building the Future of Pharmacy Campaign and increasing the college’s endowment – including endowed scholarships and endowed professorships.
Contributions to the Building the Future of Pharmacy Campaign go to creating a first-class facility for MUSC pharmacy students. Professorships and scholarships ensure we can recruit the best faculty and students to maintain the MUSC pharmacy standard of excellence.
The College of Pharmacy has embarked on an ambitious mission to maintain and build upon its reputation as one of the nation’s top pharmacy schools, producing a greater number of well-trained pharmacists to serve our population. In order to achieve this goal, it must pursue the following three-part strategy.
The College of Pharmacy has committed to building a new flagship facility at its campus in Charleston, allowing the school to expand and enhance the facilities that have served as its home for nearly 70 years. The new building will enable the college to boost its capacity and modernize its amenities, resulting in an overall learning environment that is second to none.
Of all the factors that comprise our rich learning environment, we place an extremely high premium on our faculty. Competition for top faculty is fierce and relentless, and more financial resources are needed to support their recruitment and retention.
Approximately 90 percent of our pharmacy students rely on financial support to pay for their education. Scholarships enable us to compete for academically talented students who are aggressively recruited by other academic medical centers and universities. Through these scholarships, MUSC is able to produce the next generation of top researchers and health care professionals.
