As the world faces a health emergency unprecedented in modern times, the USC School of Pharmacy has responded quickly and with great care to keep our community safe.
We have shifted to virtual tools for teaching and collaborating, moving all our courses to the web so that our more than 1,200 students can continue their training uninterrupted. Even though this may not be the semester our students anticipated, I am inspired by their resilience and their vital role in transitioning with us to these virtual platforms.
The school is working diligently to restructure and replicate the resources for students that would normally be available on campus. These include virtual advising sessions, town hall meetings, internship and career development programming, and appointments with mental and emotional health counselors.
Yet some of our students are being challenged in ways that extend beyond their classes. This crisis is causing understandable distress, from unexpected medical bill, rent and other financial hardships to new caregiving responsibilities. Some may even be facing food insecurity.
If you would like to help, please donate to our USC School of Pharmacy Emergency Assistance Fund. The fund will provide our students the financial support they need so they can focus on their education.
We are grateful to all of you for your continued support of the School, and we know that together, we will come back better and stronger than before. Fight On!
