From the Dean

Dean Welage

Dear Alumni and Friends,

Throughout 2018, the College of Pharmacy has held a number of events to mark our 125th anniversary and other milestones, including the 15th anniversary of our expansion to Duluth and the 50th anniversary of our Century Mortar Club. Thank you to everyone who attended these events to help us celebrate. I would also like to thank the many alumni, staff, faculty and students who helped organize these events and made them such a success.

At each of our anniversary events, we invited attendees to share their favorite memory from pharmacy school. If you would like to share your story, you can do so online . These memories will be collected and shared through various channels, including social media, future publications and digital monitors near classrooms.

I am extremely proud of our college’s 125-year history of excellent education, pioneering research, and interdisciplinary practice development to meet the diverse needs of the people of Minnesota and the world.

We will continue to strive for excellence in preparing the next generation of future pharmacy providers and leaders, developing and promoting new interdisciplinary approaches to healthcare, and conducting cutting edge research to tackle society’s grand challenges.

While today we are celebrating our rich history of innovation and leadership, I want to assure you that we will continue to strive for excellence in preparing the next generation of future pharmacy providers and leaders, developing and promoting new interdisciplinary approaches to healthcare, and conducting cutting edge research to tackle society’s grand challenges. 

I want to thank you for your support and the role you play in making our college one of the best in the nation.


Best wishes,
