To provide a long lasting interaction between alumni and the parent institution, the establishment of an association was felt under the guidance of Prof. C. K. Kokate. As a success, the Pharma Alumni Association was established in the year 1985 under the Presidentship of Prof. C. K. Kokate. The Executive Committee included eminent alumni members working in various professions all over the country. Later individual chapters were established in USA, Hyderabad and Gulf under the leadership of respective Co-ordinators.
The General body of the Association meets once in two years and discusses its achievements and future plans in the development of the institution. Five such meets were held so far. In the last meet, held in 2001 September, resolutions were made to conduct the meet once in three years and the Presidentship is made ex-officio to the Principal of UCPSci. The next meet is due in 2004. The Association publishes a directory comprising of batch-wise names and addresses of all the members and it will be released in the meet.
The parent institution is proud of its alumni for being affiliated with many reputed organizations across the globe. Most of the faculty members of the institution are the alumni. The alumni of the institution helped in placement of many freshers in good positions.Financial assistance from the alumni members is quite laudable. The US Chapter of the alumni providing financial assistance to M. Pharm students admitted under Non-fellowship seats. On completion of 25 years of the establishment of the college, the association took a bold decision to construct "Silver Jubilee Block" in the college premises with total funding from the alumni. The response from the alumni is good and construction work is under progress. The association will publish newsletters from time to time regarding developments of UCPSci and alumni. This will be posted to all the alumni free of charge.
