UGA College of Pharmacy Receives Insight Into Diversity Magazine’s 2024 Alumni Association Inclusive Excellence Award

The University of Georgia College of Pharmacy received the 2024 Alumni Association Inclusive Excellence Award from Insight Into Diversity magazine, the largest and oldest diversity and inclusion publication in higher education. The award honors alumni association’s programs, culture and initiatives that encourage and support diversity, inclusion and a sense of belonging for all alumni. 

The UGA College of Pharmacy will be featured, along with 31 other recipients, in the June 2024 issue of Insight Into Diversity magazine.

“We are honored and humbled to be the recipient of this award,” said Dean Kelly Smith. “We are proud of our alumni and the dedication they have committed to diversity and inclusion in their respective environments, as well as how they share these passions with students.”

The UGA College of Pharmacy was chosen because of its alumni’s dedication to its faculty, staff, and students alike. Diversity and inclusion is pivotal to the College’s mission, as seen through the alumni’s continuous sponsorship and support of events, including the annual William T. Robie III Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Lecture and Award.

“We know that alumni associations are not always recognized for their dedication to diversity, inclusion, and belonging,” said Lenore Pearlstein, owner and publisher of Insight Into Diversity magazine. 

“We are proud to honor these college and university alumni associations as role models for other institutions of higher education.”

The UGA College of Pharmacy was recently ranked the #15 pharmacy school in the nation out of 141 similar institutions by U.S. News & World Report, up nine spots from 2020.  

A call for nominations for this award was announced in February 2024.
