Student Life

The UNE College of Pharmacy strives to create new knowledge in the pharmaceutical, biomedical and clinical sciences, while developing innovative approaches to teaching and learning. We actively seek to partner with professional organizations, universities, providers and health care networks to create learning opportunities for our students that also benefit the larger community.   

The commitment to service that we foster within our students contributes to the growth of life-long learning skills and a sense of shared social responsibility. We believe both attributes are essential to the development of exceptional pharmacists.
