Pharmacy Council

College-wide Standing Committees

Applications for College-wide Standing Committees are first sent out in mid-April in order to seek out members for the following academic year. Positions with willing candidates are filled based on each application essay after review and recommendation from the Student Affairs Chair. Mid-summer, applications are sent out again in order to fill remaining open positions. Committees including P1 positions are filled early in the fall semester. The Pharmacy Council Executive Committee and the Dean of Student Affairs review and approve all recommendations made by the Student Affairs Chair. Recommendations are sent to the Dean and Senior Associate Dean for Academic Affairs for final approval. Students serving on College-wide committees are notified of their appointment by the chairs of the respective committees.
