Message from the Dean









July 13, 2021


Greetings, and thank you for exploring the Temple University School of Pharmacy.

Our community works together to provide opportunities to earn degrees in pharmacy, pharmaceutical sciences, and regulatory affairs. We lead research and innovation in pharmacy practice and science. We hold our mission as life critical - aiming to reduce the burden of disease by training exceptional healthcare professionals and pushing forward new treatment options.

Joining our community comes with chances to make meaningful changes. The world knows the value of healthcare more than ever. Pharmacists, researchers, and regulators have been seen and celebrated in the media and scientific concepts are now a part of everyday lexicon. The stage is set for transformational healthcare advocacy. Issues around race, gender, sexual orientation, substance use, disability, and more are raw and ready for your fresh take. Seize this opportunity. 

Temple University’s motto is “Perseverantia Vincit” or “Perseverance Conquers.” The School of Pharmacy brings this motto to life and even goes beyond. Recently, we have kept heads in our practice, research, and studies through a global pandemic and multiple cultural revolutions. We’ve been on the frontlines and serving in any way we can.

Together with our partners at Temple University and Temple Health and countless preceptors, alumni, funders, volunteer advocates, and clients, we provide you with a platform to learn, teach, mentor, investigate, lead, and network. Our community extends far beyond North Broad Street into the far reaches of the healthcare and scientific communities around the world.

Grounded on a history dating back to 1901, our vision to promote and preserve pharmacy and pharmacy-related professions by delivering excellence and opportunity through education, scholarship, research, and practice is as clear as ever. We will persevere, and we welcome you to join us in our endeavors.
