Message from the Dean
Welcome to Ohio Northern University, and the Raabe College of Pharmacy!
For more than 130 years, the College has been a leader in pharmacy education, practice and community outreach. We are one of the top ranked private colleges of pharmacy in the nation, according to the U.S. News and World Report, and our PharmD program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education.
The College has outstanding faculty who provide a personalized approach to the education and training of future pharmacists. Our faculty practice in diverse patient care settings, and our rural location provides ample opportunities for faculty and students to have an impact on healthcare in our community. Our faculty’s research provides students the opportunity to sharpen problem-solving skills and develop as clinician scientists while studying anything from protecting cardiac muscle during a heart attack, to identifying anti-cancer medicines in wild potatoes, to the impact pharmacists can make on the health and wellness of our community.
Students flourish at Ohio Northern, in part due to the strength of our professional student organizations. We take great pride in the accomplishments of our students, and their ability to make a difference in our community through their teamwork, innovation, and dedication to the care of others. Many of our student organizations’ activities have received national awards of recognition by the profession.
We feature a program (0 to 6) that enrolls students directly from high school, and prepares them to be pharmacists through a well-rounded liberal arts and professional education. Many of our students are also University athletes, musicians, performers, or participate in other extracurricular activities on campus that help them develop into engaged and productive citizens of the global community. Our mission at Ohio Northern University is to provide a high quality learning environment that prepares students for success in their careers, service to their communities, the nation, and the world, and a lifetime of personal growth.
The Raabe College of Pharmacy has a longstanding reputation of producing the highest quality pharmacists, and our 6000+ alumni exemplify that through their leadership in our profession, and in all aspects of healthcare.
Welcome to this remarkable community!
