For the first time in its history the College of Pharmacy at Howard University in Washington, D.C. has established a board of visitors that will advise the school’s administration on educational, fiscal, and fundraising issues. The 11-member board includes practitioners and individuals from the academic and corporate world. The board will meet officially twice each year but individual members will undertake special projects that will bring them into contact with students, faculty, and administrators.
Anthony K. Wutoh, dean of the College of Pharmacy, stated, “I look forward to their insights regarding ways to continue strengthening our academic programs and acquiring resources for scholarships, construction of a new pharmacy building and other key goals. This is another great step towards our vision to becoming one of the preeminent pharmacy programs in the country.”
Dr. Wutoh holds two bachelor’s degree and a doctorate in pharmacy from the University of Maryland. He has been with Howard University since 1996 and has been a practicing pharmacist since 1990.
