Message from President James J. Gozzo

Since 1881, Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences has earned a reputation in the health care community and beyond as an outstanding educational institution. We continue to explore opportunities to enhance our standing through additional academic offerings, new and expanded facilities, a burgeoning research program, and an array of community focused initiatives.

Examples of our recent growth include: an expanded library which doubled the size of the previous space; a redesigned dining hall complete with expanded food service offerings; renovations and expansions of our research laboratories; the installation of a new track and athletics field.

Looking beyond our two campuses, the College is also committed to helping students pursue global experiences, ranging from medical missions to research at international institutes. In the 2012-13 academic year, nearly 100 ACPHS students traveled internationally, and we expect that number to increase substantially in the years ahead.

As you will discover, ACPHS offers a first-rate education that draws upon our rich history but focuses squarely on the future. Regardless of what that future holds, our commitment to the success of each student will never change.

I look forward to meeting with you as you anticipate a promising and rewarding career.

James J. Gozzo, Ph.D.
President
