White Coat Sponsor Program

The College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences’ White Coat Sponsor Program was established to provide alumni with a special way in which to connect with undergraduate students progressing into the professional phase of their program. By supporting the purchase of one or more white coats at a cost of $30 each, and providing the sponsored student(s) with a note of encouragement, participating alumni will have a meaningful impact on this milestone event. Alumni, parents and friends of the College can sponsor a specific student’s white coat by contacting Ms. Diana J. Patino at [email protected].

Ceremonies marking this transition have traditionally been held in the fall for students pursuing a degree in pharmacy, physician assistant, and radiologic sciences. 

Sponsored students will receive a card at their respective ceremony that includes a donor’s name and words of encouragement. Sponsors will also be recognized in an event program. 

The College sincerely hopes you will join us by sponsoring one or more white coats, as we congratulate the next generation of health care professionals and wish them luck all of their future endeavors.
