The Office of Student Affairs (OSA) is located in Beard Hall, Suite 109.

OSA complements the School’s academic enterprise by providing consistent, holistic, student-centered services and experiences from recruitment matriculation through commencement. This support beyond the classroom fosters development of professional and graduate students through targeted advising, mentoring, co-curricular experiences, engagement, and professional development programming.

The Director, Professional Programs (didactic in Chapel Hill), the Director of Experiential, Student and Career Services (immersion and advanced immersion experiences), and the Associate Director, Asheville (didactic in Asheville) are the first lines of support for Doctor of Pharmacy students. They can assist students by identifying and connecting to campus support resources, including both academic and non-academic issues, and providing guidance for those seeking academic accommodations related to a disability or accessibility issue. At any point, students should feel comfortable to utilize them as a resource and advocate for any reason. Serving as the advisor for the PharmD Student Senate, the Director, Professional Programs serves as the main point of contact for student organization needs and questions as well.
