Mission and Vision

The mission of the Union University School of Pharmacy is to develop compassionate, comprehensively trained practitioners who are equipped to meet the immediate and future demands of pharmaceutical science and patient care in an ever changing health care environment.

The vision of the Union University School of Pharmacy is to

  • provide a Christ-centered environment that focuses on the intellectual, spiritual, and moral development of students in committing themselves to the service and needs of society
  • promote an excellence-driven academic culture that instills knowledge and advances understanding of biomedical, pharmaceutical, social/behavioral/ administrative, and clinical sciences
  • develop pharmacy students as practitioners who are people-focused in providing optimum, interdisciplinary care based on evidence and best-practice standards
  • support an academic environment that fosters the future-directed growth of students and faculty as it relates to education, practice, research, and scholarship initiatives

The vision for Union University's School of Pharmacy is established in congruence with the University's core values (Christ-centered, excellence-driven, people-focused, and future-directed) and the standards found in the 2006 Joint Commission of Pharmacy Practitioners (JCPP) Future Vision of Pharmacy Practice vision statement noted in the Accreditation Standards and Guidelines for the Professional Program in Pharmacy Leading to the Doctor of Pharmacy Degree.
