Boyd earns excellence in teaching award

James Alan Boyd, PharmD, MBA, was recognized by Dean Michael L. Adams with the 2015 Dean’s Award for Excellence in Teaching at Campbell University’s Senior & Faculty Awards Banquet on April 22 at the John W. Pope, Jr. Convocation Center.


Joining the Campbell University School of Pharmacy in 1990, Boyd quickly found his stride in Buies Creek and has since served as a course director for thirteen required and elective courses and currently directs two pertinent courses in the doctor of pharmacy curriculum, Jurisprudence and Financial Management. Boyd also developed the doctor of pharmacy and master of business administration dual degree program which resulted in Campbell being one of the pioneer pharmacy programs to matriculate students through both curriculums simultaneously.


“During his 25 years of teaching at Campbell, Dr. Boyd has made significant and sustainable contributions to the success of the pharmacy program and provided superior leadership as the director of the joint PharmD/MBA program,” said Dean Adams. “In addition to his teaching, he is a nationally recognized scholar in pharmacy law with over 30 publications.  He has served on numerous university and college committees and has provided extensive service to the profession demonstrating state and national recognition and leadership.”


Boyd earned his bachelor of science in pharmacy and doctor of pharmacy degrees from the University of Nebraska’s Medical Center College of Pharmacy. He earned his master of business administration from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Business.
