Dean Linda Gore Martin Retires
After serving as Dean of the School of Pharmacy for three years, Linda Gore Martin has announced her retirement. Dean Martin has a long and rich history with the School of Pharmacy. She developed the Drug Information Center in 1975 and ran it until 2000, when she accepted a position as Assistant Professor of Social and Administrative Pharmacy.
Throughout her career Dean Martin was active in service to the University and the community, in her research and contributions to the Pharmacy profession, and in teaching and mentoring students. The quality of her work in these areas is reflected in the many awards she received, including the Daniel Klein Spirit of Volunteerism Award from the Laramie Downtown Clinic, the Wyoming Pharmacist of the Year Award, the University of Wyoming College of Health Sciences Lifetime Achievement Award, the Mortar Board “Top Prof” Award, the University of Wyoming College of Health Sciences Outstanding Researcher Award, and the University of Wyoming Excellence in Advising Award (twice).
During her tenure as dean, Dr. Martin was instrumental in leading the school’s re-accreditation efforts, which resulted in the School’s continued accreditation through June 2021. Looking back at her years as dean, she says “I am so proud of where the School of Pharmacy is today. I took it over in a good place, but my team (faculty, staff, and students) has moved it to a much higher level. It was all done with a great working relationship—that sense of community that is so important.”
Dean Martin will be greatly missed. Her retirement plans include spending the winters in Ft. Mohave, AZ and looking forward to the great summer and fall of Laramie.
