EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Student engagement is key to the success of schools and colleges of pharmacies in meeting their mission and programmatic needs. Student engagement in the pharmacy profession often occurs before acceptance to pharmacy school and is essential during students' formal period of study both for the student's professional growth and in meeting the mission of the school. Alumni engagement is vital to a school's continued success in regard to engaging with current students and support of their alma mater. The committee offers best practice recommendations for engaging students in service, scholarship, education, professional practice and continuing professional development.
