Mission Statement

To advance health through excellence in pharmacy education, research and practice.

A Message about Giving

For more than 100 years, the USC School of Pharmacy has served as a beacon of innovation and excellence in pharmaceutical education, research, and practice, and has long been ranked in the top pharmacy schools nationwide by U.S. News & World Report, and #1 among private schools of pharmacy.

As society and the profession have evolved over the past century, the school has created forward-looking educational programs, established a national model of clinical pharmacy through our work serving at-risk communities, advanced therapies that have yielded tangible improvements in people’s lives, and helped pioneer the transformation of the pharmacist’s role from a dispenser of medicines to a direct provider of patient care. Now, as health care reform in the United States creates an opportunity to dramatically reduce costs and increase access, the USC School of Pharmacy is seizing the moment to redefine the pharmacist’s role in improving human health by leading the convergence of science, health care, and policy.

The USC School of Pharmacy is poised for a tremendous advance in quality, reputation, and societal impact—an advance that will be fueled by strategic investment in the school’s students, faculty, academic and research programs, and capital enhancements. That is why the USC School of Pharmacy has embarked on an initiative that will generate crucial resources for faculty and research, academic and professional priorities, scholarships, and capital enhancements. We invite you to join us to ensure that the school continues to set standards of innovation and excellence in education, research, and clinical practice for many generations to come. Together, we can advance our profession and improve health.
