Walgreens $5,000 diversity donation aids Manchester pharmacy students 

PLUS-PharmacyFORT WAYNE, Ind. – Walgreens has given $5,000 to the Manchester University Pharmacy Program.

Walgreens representative Nichole Cover presented the diversity donation to W. Thomas Smith, dean of Pharmacy Programs, at the Fort Wayne campus.

Manchester will use the money to provide scholarships to MU winners of the Walgreens Multilingual Scholarship and the Diversity and Inclusion Excellence Award.

Manchester University welcomes diversity in its various forms and definitions. Its Values Statement lists diversity as a core value "... because understanding differences develops respect for ethnic, cultural, and religious pluralism; an international consciousness; and an appreciation for the infinite worth of every person."

Manchester has one of the most diverse pharmacy programs in Indiana, Ohio and Michigan, and its students do both training and service among underserved populations – including the homeless, those with limited English skills and diverse cultural backgrounds.

Walgreens has donated more than $1 million each year since 2008 to accredited pharmacy schools across the nation.
