Pharmacy school to divide into four departments

The University Board of Regents has
approved the adoption of a departmental
structure withinthe College ofPharmacy.
As of July 1, there will be four academic
departments in the college.
A faculty member will lead each
of the four academic departments
that are to be established based on
similar disciplines in the College of
Pharmacy. The departments will be
the department of clinical sciences,
the department of medicinal chem-
istry, the department of pharmaceuti-
cal sciences, and the department of
social and administrative sciences.

The College of Pharmacy has been
preparing for this change for some
time. The dean of the college,
George Kenyon, was appointed in
the fall of 1998, and wanted the col-
lege to move towards a departmental
structure. Kenyon was dean of the
College of Pharmacy at the
University of California in San
Francisco, which held a departmen-
tal structure. In January 1999, four
of the University's pharmacy faculty
became appointed to divisional
chairs, which led to the formal
departmentalization. Frank Ascione,
a professor in the college and associ-
ate dean starting this fall.. said he felt
that faculty and staff were well
informed about the upcoming change
in the departmental structure.
"Organizational structure was a
key question asked of all dean candi-
dates. Dean Kenyon clearly stated in
his interview that he favored depart-
ments," Ascione said.
The new departmental structure at
the college will result in a decentraliza-
tion of the College of Pharmacy admin-
istration.The leadership of the new aca-
demic departments will now have more
authority over decisions made about
their specific departments as well as
faculty decisions. The academic depart-
ments will be able to handle issues
including faculty hiring, teachingmeth-
ods, and student scholarships.
Staff of the college saidthey felt the
new structure is essentially beneficial to
its progress. Dennis Gilbert, Director of
Communications at the College of
Pharmacy, said he felt the new decen-
tralization of the college could o
enhance the administration.
"The concept of decentralized man-
agement is that it delegates more deci-
sion-making and problem-solving
authority to smaller administrative units.
By empowering people in this way, our
intent is to create an environment that
nurtures the type of independent thinking
and adaptability that distinguishes the
best organizations," Gilbert said.
Assistant Dean for Student Servi
Valener Perry also said she supports the
change to a departmental structure.
"This is a more formalized approach
to giving people responsibility. Faculty
are supportive of it," she said.
The changes in the departmental
structure of the college will not have
much of an effect on College of
Pharmacy students. Ascione said that
although there may be a slight change,
the new structure will be beneficial to
the quality of education in the Colle
"The underlying question is how
this departmental structure will
affect students, especially our pro-
fessional graduate program. I think it
will be subtle. I believe that the
departmental structure will create a
more consistent educational
approach to these students because
the issue can be addressed more gen-
erally," Ascione said.
"In addition, faculty are -likel to
held more accountable for their efforts
because the department heads will be ina
better position to assess and review their
educational activities,' he added.
