It is my extreme pleasure to welcome you to the College of Pharmacy at Xavier University of Louisiana. It is my desire that the information provided would give visitors as well as our faculty, staff, students and alumni up-to-date information on our programs and activities. We will also make every effort to provide links to other information that will be of benefit to our constituents.
As Dean of the College, I am committed to providing an environment that promotes excellence in what I consider to be the business of the academy: student development, scholarship and service to society. This goal can be achieved by recruiting the highest quality faculty, staff and students and then focusing on programmatic assessment at all levels.
The College has also developed a strong foundation in basic research and we will continue to build on this strength. In keeping with our mission, we have developed an exciting initiative related to eliminating health disparities, which focuses on research, education and community outreach.¬† Through the Center for Minority Health and Health Disparities , this initiative will serve as a major focus for our continued programmatic development.¬† We will also promote development in all areas of scholarship in order to achieve a balanced program and to maximize student development . Finally, I would like to encourage you to contact me or any other members of the faculty and staff if you need additional information or if we can provide assistance. The success of our program depends on the participation of all the constituents of the College and I look forward to working with you.
