In November 2017, the WSU Board of Regents voted to approve a change to the official name of our college from the College of Pharmacy to the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences.
Updating our name was important in order to better communicate our balanced mission to advance human health through excellence in collaborative research, scholarship and clinical education, and develop outstanding health care professionals and scientists.
The college communications office is coordinating a gradual roll-out of our new name to accommodate the logistics of redesign and reprinting of materials. We are already beginning to use the new name internally and with some external processes. The transition is planned to be complete with the beginning of the new academic year in August of 2018.
As we go through this process, we are seeking feedback from faculty, staff, students, alumni, and our community partners to gauge our name awareness and better provide communications resources to our faculty and staff.
