Community Outreach & Engagement
In harmony with The Ohio State University's O & E mission, the mission of the College of Pharmacy's Outreach & Engagement is
"to identify community needs that would benefit from the knowledge and skills unique to pharmaceutical sciences and the profession of pharmacy. Once identified, these needs can serve as a foundation for the establishment of appropriate community/College of Pharmacy partnerships where congruent missions and goals exist. In this way reciprocal relationships can be formed to serve both community and College interests."
While engaged in appropriate partnerships, the college community directed by the faculty will employ the latest scientific knowledge and educational methods to:
- Conduct curricular-based continuing education that facilitates life-long learning of pharmacists, other health-care professionals and the community.
- Collaborate on the development of products and services that lead to improvements in healthcare of people in our community.
- Engage students in service-learning activities that will enhance their academic experience and foster their continued appreciation of involvement with the community.
