See What Alumni Have to Say
I was really surprised when my daughter Andrea, a medical student, told me that the College of Medicine has an independent financial advisor who provides free, unbiased financial advice for students AND alumni.
I met with Mike Clancy twice, once for an overview of our family's financial situation, and then for a follow up after he had reviewed it. I found Mike to be experienced, knowledgeable, and — most importantly — unbiased, with no conflict of interest. This was a really useful reality check and I am implementing his suggestions for our family's financial portfolio.
I have been recommending his services to my friends, and thank the administration for its vision in making this happen.

The Legacy Center: Archives and Special Collections is the repository for the records and heritage of the College and its predecessor institutions. The Legacy Center recently launched a new website, Doctor or Doctress?, which helps students and anyone else interested explore American history through the stories of women physicians.
A Q&A with Joanne Murray, director of the Legacy Center [PDF], was featured in the Summer/Fall 2014 issue of the Alumni Magazine. In it, she explains the importance of the archives, and encourages alumni to donate items from their medical school days, or visit the archives to see the collection in person.
