You can help the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences and its students in many valuable ways. Serve as a preceptor for the next generation of pharmacists; serve on one of the boards and offer ideas; volunteer by encouraging classmates to attend Homecoming or reunion events; and support the college and its students financially. Without all of these efforts, we would not be able to offer students the high-quality education that the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences provides.
Become a Preceptor
If you would like to be personally involved in preparing future pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists for success, please consider becoming a preceptor. Preceptors are experts or specialists in their fields who give practical experience and training to pharmacy and pharmaceutical science students.

Help With an Event
Willing alumni are always needed to help plan and execute events and reunions. You can contact classmates, offer suggestions for what programs you’d like to see at Homecoming, host an alumni reception in your area, or even suggest your own idea for an event. Some ideas include family day at the ball park, networking session after work or getting a group together to volunteer at a local clinic. Contact Associate Director of Alumni Relations, Marcus Sneed, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let Pharmacy Campers Shadow You
Each summer, The College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences hosts two sessions of Pharmacy Summer Camp to introduce students to the pharmacy and pharmaceutical science professions. The camp is open to high school juniors who demonstrate strong academic skills and an interest in pharmacy or the pharmaceutical sciences. Camp activities include field trips, pharmaceutical laboratory experiences, job shadowing, introduction to pharmacy curriculum and discussions about current topics in pharmacy.
Pharmacy and pharmaceutical science professionals are needed for one morning during each session of the camp. Please consider helping motivated students get a glimpse of the possibilities of a career in pharmacy.
