Dean’s Message – 2016: Fasten Your Seat Belt!

Over the course of the College of Pharmacy’s hundred year history in Providence and Kingston, there have been a number of watershed years. The opening of the Rhode Island College of Pharmacy and Allied Sciences Benefit Street building in Providence in 1924, the move of that College to URI in Kingston in 1957, the opening of Fogarty Hall in 1964, our adoption of an “All-Pharm.D.” program in 1998, the initial funding of the INBRE research program at URI in 2001 and completion of our current pharmacy building in 2012 come to mind. Periods of great change and the potential for accelerated advancement. 2016 is shaping up to be one of those transformative years.
