Going the Extra Mile – GEM!


Program Announcement

It gives me great pleasure to announce a new program to recognize our outstanding faculty and staff at the College of Pharmacy.  We will solicit nominations each month for people you think are GEMs – Going the Extra Mile – to embody the college value statement:

Academic excellence will be pursued in an environment that respects the individual, instills integrity and professionalism, assures ethical behavior, promotes diversity, creates a desire for life-long learning, and recognizes the principle of academic freedom.

College-wide recognition for our colleagues who are helping create this environment for our work and our students’ education will take the shape of a monthly announcement of our college GEM, as well as a swag package and preferred parking for the month.

Nominations can be submitted at this link:


I look forward to reading your nominations of the colleagues you think are going the extra mile to promote our college and values!
