FAMU Pharmacy off probation



FAMU officials on Monday got good news about one of their most vaunted colleges.

The College of Pharmacy, the nation's largest producer of African-American pharmacists, is no longer on probation by its accreditor.

FAMU officials announced accreditors' decision Monday. The pharmacy college had been on probation in recent months because of accreditors' concerns over curriculum, teaching facilities and faculty staffing levels. FAMU has tried but failed so far to get state money to expand its pharmacy facilities.
