About Us > Message from the Dean
Greetings from the School of Pharmacy at Union University!
Welcome to our website. Our hope is that this site will serve as a resource as you embark on your journey into the world of professional pharmacy education. It will provide information about our program as well as the unique learning atmosphere that you will experience at Union University, where we are truly building a different kind of pharmacy school from the ground up.
Union University has been recognized for excellence by such prestigious national publications as U. S. News and World Report, Time/Princeton Review, Peterson’s Competitive Colleges, America’s Best Christian Colleges, and others. At Union you will find education characterized by rigorous academic pursuit and authentic Christian commitment in a community of forward-thinking faculty, staff, and students committed to these ideals.
The School of Pharmacy at Union University has been established in this same great tradition, educating and equipping young pharmacists to enter practice as confident, prepared individuals motivated by excellence and a desire to serve. The challenges facing the health care community in the 21st century are numerous, and practitioners will need excellent pharmaceutical, professional, and ethical training in order to deal with these challenges. Union University will equip you to competently practice in the complex and ever changing arena of pharmacy. Further, and most significantly, pharmacy education at Union University brings forward the University’s commitment to ask important questions about faith. At Union, we will explore what the Christian faith and intellectual tradition bring to bear on the subject matter we study as pharmacists.
I hope that you will take the time to explore Union’s School of Pharmacy as a possibility for your professional training. I invite you not only to look around our website, but to give us a call and schedule a visit to our campus. Come and see what makes us distinctly different!
