Walgreens has donated $10,000 to Manchester University’s College of Pharmacy, Natural, and Health Sciences to boost diversity on campus.

A representative from the pharmacy chain presented the check to pharmacy dean and Manchester University Vice President Raylene Rospond at the Fort Wayne, Indiana, campus, the school stated in a press release.

The gift will be used to increasing the pool of diverse pharmacy students through scholarships, outreach programs, and campus activities.

The school cited 2014 figures from the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, which named Manchester as a top school for diversity compared with other pharmacy schools in Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan.

In 2015, 17% of Manchester’s students were part of a minority group, the school noted.

“The check…is a testament to Walgreens’ strong commitment to supporting programs and initiative to foster diversity and inclusion within the pharmacy profession and the communities it serves,” the school noted in a statement.

Since 2008, Walgreens has donated more than $1 million each year to pharmacy schools.

Ohio Northern University also received a $10,000 diversity grant from Walgreens in December 2015.
