Drugstore Giant Writes $10k Prescription for Diversity at Saint Joseph Pharm School

The Saint Joseph College School of Pharmacy was awarded a $10,000 grant from the Walgreens Diversity Scholarship fund to develop programs to promote diversity at the school.

Offering a unique three calendar-year doctorate program in pharmacy, the school will welcome its inaugural class this fall in Hartford. It will mark the West Hartford-based Saint Joseph’s first campus extension into Connecticut’s capital city.

Only 11%  of students pursuing pharmacy degrees are from minority groups. Walgreens—the nation’s largest drugstore chain—has donated more than $2 million to support diversity initiatives at U.S. pharmacy schools since 2008.
