In the summer of 2008, Sullivan University accepted its inaugural class of Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) students, at its main campus in Louisville, to provide career opportunities to students and to meet the growing need for pharmacists in the region. To accommodate this new program, an 80,000 square foot building on nearly 6 acres, adjacent to the Louisville campus was purchased and a 20,000 square foot, three-story wing was added to meet the unique needs of pharmacy education. In the fall of 2010, Sullivan University welcomed an inaugural class of eleven students to its first Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree program. The degree, a PhD in Management, allows students to concentrate some of their studies in Strategic Management, Information Technology (IT) Management, Conflict Management, or Human Resource Leadership. With the addition of the PhD program, the university’s mission statement, whose core is to provide stair-step educational opportunities with appropriate support mechanisms, was revised to appropriately include research within the doctoral sphere of education.
