Pharmacy students are active in our 25 student organizations and grow to excel in leadership and community service at the local, state, regional, and national levels. Student contributions are broad and diverse, reflecting the many perspectives and backgrounds of not only our student body but also our surrounding communities, both in Tucson and Phoenix. Through events and activities of our student organizations we have opportunities to lead, get involved in community service projects and professional development activities, and contribute to a vital and inquisitive environment that cultivates student personal and professional growth. Our pharmacy students coordinate community projects and health fairs; and influence decisions within our college and on campus through representation in governing committees and organizations.
