Probation Lifted for UC Pharmacy School

Feb 9, 2015

The University of Charleston's School of Pharmacy is no longer on probation.

The university says the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education's Board of Directors lifted the probation last week. The board restored the pharmacy program's full accreditation.

The council had placed the pharmacy school on a two-year probationary status in July 2014. The council said the school was noncompliant with a standard requiring that an accredited school be headed by a dean, collaborate with the larger university, and be autonomous.

University of Charleston President Edwin Welch says in a news release that the pharmacy school has upgraded policies, strengthened institutional relationships and added seven faculty and administrative members.
