Dean's Message to the Class of 2020

Posted on May 08, 2020

Dear Class of 2020,

You will never know the amount of planning, effort, and nimble responsiveness (based on ever-changing requirements and restrictions) that faculty, staff, and administrators had to contend with to ensure that you would be able to complete graduation requirements!

Your health and well-being were always the number one concern. Meeting the ACPE standards, fulfilling curriculum degree requirements, and being practice-ready graduates were close seconds.

Thank you for your persistence and patience in completing March, April, and May rotations!

It is my ardent desire that we will come together in a physical space in August so we can conduct the hooding ceremony, hear some remarks, and close with you citing the APhA Oath of a Pharmacist as OU's newest pharmacy alumni.

Best wishes until then,

JoLaine R. Draugalis, RPh, PhD, FAPhA, FASHP
