Manchester College Receives $35 Million Grant From Lilly Endowment for School of Pharmacy
Date:12/20/2010

FORT WAYNE, Ind., Dec. 20, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- A small Midwest college that is producing alumni with sizeable reputations in the science world has received a $35 million grant from Lilly Endowment to launch a School of Pharmacy.

Manchester College, located in northern Indiana, has a Nobel Laureate in chemistry, the inventor of Teflon®, the discoverer of acid rain in North America and the first female commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration among its graduates.

The grant – the largest in Manchester College history – will help the liberal arts and sciences college develop its first doctoral program on a Fort Wayne campus, surrounded by regional hospitals, pharmacies and health care facilities and services.

Speaking on behalf of Lilly Endowment, Sara B. Cobb, vice president of education, said, "We are pleased to offer this funding to Manchester College to assist it in establishing its new School of Pharmacy. The school will further important efforts in Indiana to increase opportunities for education and careers in the STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) disciplines. The Endowment believes this support should add significantly to the intellectual capital in Northeast Indiana and enhance the vibrant life sciences sector growing throughout the state."

Responding to the national shortage of pharmacists and openings in pharmacy schools, Manchester announced last fall its plans to seek accreditation for a four-year doctoral program in pharmacy, with the first classes beginning in fall 2012.

"Lilly Endowment is making a powerful impact on the college's ability to focus on the most important work before us: building a distinctive, academically strong, mission-centered School of Pharmacy," said President Jo Young Switzer.

"This grant enhances our tools to attract exceptional faculty in a highly competitive market," said Switzer. "When accredited, the School of Pharmacy will enroll
