Tutoring services are available to all University of Kansas School of Pharmacy students through Rho Chi. Rho Chi is a national academic honor society which recognizes excellence and intellectual achievement in pharmacy. Student members of the University of Kansas School of Pharmacy Alpha Rho chapter of Rho Chi provide tutoring services to underclassmen who request tutoring assistance.


Pharmacy students based on the Wichita campus have access to Rho Chi tutors, based on either the Wichita or Lawrence campuses, through the scheduled use of either ITV videoconferencing or Skype for Business desktop conferencing.

Wichita-based students who wish to access Rho Chi tutoring services should contact the KU School of Pharmacy-Wichita Student Services Office at 316-293-3500 or in person to schedule an appointment to meet with Dean Emerson to discuss specific needs and the curricular content area for which tutoring services are requested.
