Alumni Awards

SPPS Alumni Association Awards

We proudly recognize outstanding alumni every April at our awards ceremony, commending those who over the past year have contributed significantly to the school's mission, the profession of pharmacy and scholarly achievements.

Each year, the UB Alumni Association recognizes a group of outstanding alumni and friends for their achievements and bringing distinction to UB. Held each spring, the on-campus celebration includes dignitaries, alumni, colleagues, family and friends.
