Dean's Advisory Council

The Dean’s Advisory Council is a small group of Binghamton University alumni, friends and pharmacy leaders who assist the dean and key members of the school’s leadership in determining the direction and focus the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is taking. The council aids in all aspects of accreditation, including participation in site visits and strategic planning.

Council members are selected by the dean and represent a broad range of backgrounds and expertise. Membership includes one representative from the school’s faculty; a student representative will be selected by the student body to serve on the council.


  • Faculty representative will serve a two-year term
  • Student representative will serve a two-year term
  • All other council members will serve a three-year term
  • Terms will be renewed at the discretion of the council
  • Terms will be staggered to allow for approximately one-fourth of the council to be replaced each year after the inaugural council has served
  • Council members who cannot fulfill their responsibilities will be replaced if necessary
