Fostering leadership in our students is a core value at Pacific; at the Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences we embrace our responsibility to instill and model effective leadership skills in all our students. Teaching students to be of service to others, while nurturing and demonstrating skills such as effectively influencing and motivating colleagues encourages our students to take advantage of leadership opportunities available in their fraternities, organizations, and professional association chapters. This, by design, gives students a sense of responsibility for the direction of their practice and empowers them, as alumni, to be involved – and often at the forefront – of their professional associations, policy issues, and special interest groups.
