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.
