Jim DaltonDear alumni, students, donors, and friends,

The Wolverines are having a great football season and the U-M College of Pharmacy has had one of its best years ever! We have plenty to be grateful for in Ann Arbor during this season of thanks. Our students, faculty, and alumni continue to make their mark on the profession and give back to their communities.  Our donors contributed over $22.6M to the record setting Victors for Michigan University campaign goal – U-M is the first public university to exceed $5B fundraised. And as you will read in the College’s annual report, Interactions – recently delivered to your mailbox, there are many exciting developments on the horizon. In order to keep improving the connection between the College and its alumni, students, and donors, I need your feedback on the College’s annual report. As a thank-you for your time filling out this short survey, participants will be entered into a drawing for two tickets to the 2019 U-M homecoming football game.

Happy Holidays and Go Blue! 

Dean Jim Dalton
