Madison, Wis. (June 1, 2017) – Edgewood College is pleased to announce Concordia University Wisconsin’s School of Pharmacy has signed an agreement that streamlines students’ pathway to receiving an undergraduate degree and doctor of pharmacy degree from the two institutions.

The agreement allows for students to complete three years of undergraduate coursework at Edgewood College and, with successful admission into the Pharm.D. program at Concordia University Wisconsin (CUW), earn a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry: Pharmacy concentration from Edgewood College after successful completion of the first year of pharmacy school at CUW.

“I truly believe the way of the future for institutions like ours and Concordia University Wisconsin is not to retrench but to actively pursue and invest in educational partnerships, and the partnership that we have formed today is one great example of that effort,” Dean Pribbenow, Vice President for Academic Affairs said. “These types of partnerships show that we are responding to the interest of our students and the needs of the times, and they allow us to leverage our own distinct missions and academic programs.”

“These kinds of partnerships are mutually beneficial for private, liberal arts institutions such as our own,” Dr. William Cario, Senior Vice President of Academics at Concordia University Wisconsin said. “I hope that Concordia can continue to seize opportunities of this sort as they come along.”
