college of pharmacy

The Irma Lerma Rangel College of Pharmacy opened on the campus of Texas A&M-Kingsville in 2006 to address the shortage of pharmacists in the border region. Since then, it has established an exceptional pharmacy program, obtained full professional accreditation with flying colors and graduated six cohorts of students (42 percent of whom returned to South Texas to help underserved populations). The college’s leadership strives to entrench a culture of excellence, education, research, practice and patient care to each professional student enrolled. The college is ranked in the country’s top 50 pharmacy programs by U.S. News & World Report.

Advance the Center for Pharmaceutical Research ($3 million)

The Center for Pharmaceutical Research seeks to create a public-private enterprise that advances the research and development of safe, timely and cost-effective pharmaceutical products. In addition to aiding in efficient pharmaceutical and vaccine product development, the center serves as a conduit for educational and training opportunities in pharmacy, vaccines and nanotechnology. The college seeks to create two $1 million endowed chairs for faculty in the center, as well as raise an additional $2 million for operational and research funding.

Support faculty through endowed chairs and professorships ($3 million)

Top-notch faculty members attract not only other superb professors but also superb students. Because state funds cover only basic faculty requirements, private support is more critical than ever. You can fund an endowed chair or professorship to support one of the College of Pharmacy’s top faculty. Endowed funds generate an annual income to pay for a professor’s research, travel costs and the salaries of his or her graduate assistants. Establish a chair through a $1 million gift or a professorship through a $500,000 gift.

Fund graduate scholarships ($1 million)

Some of the best pharmacy students can’t afford today’s tuition, but endowed scholarships open a world of possibilities because they provide benefits to current and future generations. You can fund an endowed scholarship for a College of Pharmacy student starting at $25,000. Gifts are customizable and can be made using cash, securities, property or through your estate.
