The USC School of Pharmacy launched its $100 million fundraising initiative during a gala event on Nov. 3 at the historic Belasco Theater in downtown Los Angeles.

Supporters, faculty and USC leadership celebrated the school’s achievements even as they planned for a bolder future. The initiative is part of the larger Campaign for the University of Southern California, a multiyear effort to secure $6 billion or more in private philanthropy to advance USC’s academic priorities and expand its positive impact.

In opening the evening’s program, USC President C. L. Max Nikias hailed the school’s many achievements and legacy.

“The School of Pharmacy has cleared a trailblazing path of many ‘firsts’ that others have followed,” he said. “As the top private school of pharmacy in the nation, it still lays claim to one distinction that no other institution can match: It is the only school in the nation that spans the entire spectrum of pharmaceutical development and clinical care.”
