Volunteer Opportunities

Dean’s Advisory Council

Comprising volunteer alumni and friends of the college, the Dean's Advisory Council provides advice to the dean regarding pharmacy education and alumni relations and supports the college's marketing and fundraising programs. Members of DAC represent a range of specialities and fields within and outside of the pharmacy profession, including ambulatory and acute-care pharmacy, wholesalers, chain drug stores, law, alternative medicine and the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.

The full council typically meets twice each year (spring and fall), with committee meetings and/or workshops scheduled as needed. Each member serves a term of term of three years for up two consecutive terms. For more information about serving on the DAC, please contact Kristan Perello at 713-743-6733.
