The Gregory "Pharmicthus"

The Pharmicthus, prominently displayed in the center of our school's logo, represents a blending of the pharmacy's classic Rx symbol with Christianity's icthus (fish).  The symbol reflects our belief that spiritual growth facilitates personal and professional growth.  The pharmicthus conveys a simple message that captures the heart of our mission - students can become better pharmacists by following Christ's example of serving, teaching and healing those in need.

 Mission
"Pharmacy with Faith”
We develop servant-leaders who are patient care advocates.

The Gregory School of Pharmacy serves the healthcare needs of the public by training future pharmacists to be patient-centered advocates who promote wellness and improve health outcomes.  We develop servant-leaders who are fully committed to raising the standards of practice within the profession of pharmacy by following Christ’s example of serving, teaching, and healing those in need.

2. Life-long Growth and Learning
We continually seek to grow academically, professionally and spiritually, that we might become better advocates for those we serve.

We model ourselves after the servant-leadership example of Jesus by extending our hands to those in need.
