Carla White, Assistant Dean for Innovative Leadership and Diversity

We Aspire:

To be a school community that gathers strength from difference; one that  encompasses individuals that reflect a broad range of backgrounds and views, differential abilities, and individual talents.

Our Perspective:

The School strives to be a diverse community of people, and has the core value that a diversity of views, genders, races, ethnic backgrounds, and experiences of its faculty, staff and students is vital to allow the school to execute its mission to develop leaders who have a positive impact on human health worldwide.

A primary mission of the Office of Innovative Leadership and Diversity at the School is to recruit, retain, and develop the next generation of pharmacy leaders. We envision a school that reflects, in all its dimensions, the population it serves.

Get Involved.

What makes the signature programs of Office of Innovative Leadership and Diversity unique is the insight they provide — students contemplating a career in pharmacy want to hear about the experiences of our current students and alums. Come to an event and network. Become a mentor. Share the perspective that is uniquely yours.
