For more than 125 years, the University of Iowa College of Pharmacy has led the way in educating pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists. The college is well known for its high-quality pharmacy education, advanced practice models, patient care, drug discovery, product development, and contract manufacturing.  Now is the time for the college to reach for even greater heights! With a new, state-of-the-art building, Iowa pharmacy can continue to deliver a contemporary pharmacy education and prepare its graduates to be the health care leaders and scientists of the future.  

The new College of Pharmacy building is a reality, in part, because of generous alumni and friends.  This unwavering support has been - and will continue to be - instrumental in sustaining and growing the college's tradition of excellence as one of the nation's elite pharmacy schools.  

Core values in designing the building include:

  • Education first (students are our priority)
  • Entrepreneurship and innovation -- drug discovery and delivery systems, and translational science
  • Advancing patient care delivery and advocating for practice change
  • Building community
  • Commitment to inclusivity
