Founders Day

On Nov. 11, 1864, University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy in St. Louis was officially founded in the hall of the St. Louis Medical College. In recent years, Founders Day has become one of the University's most important traditions, as the campus community unites to reflect on all those who have contributed to the University's rich history.

Join us on Friday, Nov. 12 for a day of service, celebration and fun as we come together to honor our rich history.

To learn more about our institution’s incredible history, we invite you to look back to our Sesquicentennial Celebration on Nov. 11, 2014, honoring the 150th anniversary of our founding. During our Sesquicentennial Convocation, Dr. Bob Zebroski, Ph.D., assistant dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, chair of the Department of Liberal Arts and professor of history, gave a special presentation on this history our of institution and the pioneers that led our growth and evolution.
