Founded in 1868, Hampton University is a leading historically black university (HBCU) located on the Virginia Peninsula in the City of Hampton. It is a privately endowed, co-educational, nonsectarian institution. The School of Pharmacy is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education through 2023, and awards the Doctor of Pharmacy degree. It is located on the east coast of Virginia in the picturesque Hampton Roads area that includes the cities of Hampton, Norfolk, Williamsburg, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Suffolk, and Newport News. The University seeks to motivate and prepare students to achieve at the highest academic level. Students develop and demonstrate a sense of character within themselves and in their relationship with others.  Students are taught to embrace those personal values, which make them responsive to the social, economic and more problems affecting our society.

Duties and Responsibilities

Responsibilities include developing, coordinating and delivering didactic education that aligns with current ACPE standards. The successful candidate is expected to pursue research and scholarly activity along with appropriate service to the School of Pharmacy, the University and community.
