UF College of Pharmacy Centennial Year

Dean’s Message

From our humble beginnings in 1923, the University of Florida College of Pharmacy has risen to become a beacon serving the pharmacy profession and the pharmaceutical sciences.

A place generations of Gator graduates have called home and used their education and training to improve the health and well-being of citizens throughout Florida and the world. A college that has embraced people from all walks of life and empowered servant leaders at the top of the profession. A community proud of its legacy and contributions to the world, yet focused on the future and opportunities to shape pharmacy in the next century.

As we embark on our centennial year in 2023, the UF College of Pharmacy will celebrate the people, places and moments in time that have inspired us to pursue pharmacy greatness. We will reflect upon our past and gain a greater understanding of how history will inform our future.

Events are planned throughout the year to connect current and former Gator pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists, and we invite you to join in the celebration of “100 Years of Pharmacy Greatness.”
