Transcript Pharmacy Works to Retain Students New Advising and Counseling Fee Imposed for Pharmacy Students "W" ^hen students enroll %/%/ in a professional pro- T Y gram like the College of Pharmacy, it is important for them to become involved in professional and community activities. This enables them to gain practical experience that will enhance their professional expertise and allow them to become confident, competent practitioners. Several pharmacy students were involved in Texas Pharmacy Week last year. Although the College of Pharmacy is one of the smaller colleges on the UH campus, taking a leadership role in educating the campus commuity about (health and chemical dependency issues, as well as about pharmaceutical care, was important to its students. Dean Mustafa Lokhandwala said, "As we look at various areas in the College, and more specifically, in the professional program, which need improvement, the one major concern I have is that of student retention. I am committed to doing all we can to ensure that leach student we take into our program is able to graduate. Our jrecord in this area needs much improvement. Beginning with this academic year, we instituted a formalized advising policy that (monitored each student's aca- "I'm committed to doing all we can to ensure that each student we take into our program is able to graduate" - College of Pharmacy Dean Mustafa Lokhandwala demic performance and provided tutoring and other assistance to students who either needed it or were interested in receiving it. "We also looked at some policies to determine whether modifications in them would also help student retention. In order to fund this activity, which required more personnel support, we had to institute a special advising and coun- seling fee," Lokhandwa a said. In addition to being involved and paying the utmost attention to their education, students are also encouraged to become involved in some of | the pharmacy organizations within the college. Involvement in such activities is stressed because it will serve as a starting point at which the students begin to learn the value of collaborating with one another, the role of leadership and the ability to make positive changes through collective efforts. In addition to classroom learning, students were provided with other learning opportunities. A large number of students actively participated in professional meetings of such groups as the American Pharmaceutical Association, the Texas Society of Hospital Pharmacists and the National Pharmaceutical Assocation. — Susan Spring Pre-pharmacy major Michon Conley gains valuable experience for her major by working at the pharmacy in the Health Center.

Photo by Mark Lacy Congressional Internship program offers minorities opportunities Founded by the late United States Representative Mickey Leland, the Congressional Internship Program, which bears his name, provides minority students with first-hand experience working in our nation's legislative process. Each year, a handful of UH students spend a semester in Washington, D.C., serving as congressional interns. Lodging expenses and a stipend are provided supported entirely by donations from Houston Endowments and private cooperate contributions. "The internship program prepares and introduces minorities into the workings of a government system that provides them with insight they wouldn't normally get," said Thor Christensen, assistant director of the College's Center for Public Policy. Students must be United States citizens and members of a recognized ethnic minority. The students which were from UH were Patricia Vizuet Galvan, Lisa Ann Royee, Sophia Gutirrez and Stephanie Ann Puente. "The internship introduces minorities into the workings of a government system," Thor Christensen, assistant director ofCPP The project which is directed by Linda Reed, professor of history and African American Studies is coordinated by UH's Center for Public Policy. Established in 1981, CPP serves the Houston community as an impartial research organization in the UH's College of Social Sciences. Drawing on the research and public interest of university faculty, CPP was designed to identify and evaluate major public policy issues through program activities. Economic, demographic and political research on the eight county region surrounding Houston is currently CPP's primary focus. Results of CPP's research is shared with the community through conferences and symposia, educational programs and publication. CPP is supported by an advisory board of Houstonians prominent in the business and civic affairs, and maintains cooperative relationships with many educational and public services entities in he Social Sciences Houston area. -JoAnn Stephens Social Sciences Offers Opportunities 132 # Academics Pharmacy/Social Sciences 6B) 133
