College of Health Professions

You make us proud!

On behalf of the faculty, staff and students, I would like to thank each of you for your commitment and dedication to the College! I have the distinct privilege of serving as the new dean for the College of Health Professions. I would like to extend a special thank you to our former interim dean Dr. Jim Zoller and former dean Dr. Lisa Saladin for all they have done to help make this a smooth transition.

As dean, I see the opportunity for the college to expand into new directions including starting new online and hybrid educational programs, greater integration of our college with our health care system, and increased health services research that will help us bring more cost-effective patient centered care to our citizens in South Carolina and beyond. These are great possibilities and avenues for our success and, YOU are a special part of our success. 

I sincerely hope you share our pride with the level of excellence in all of our endeavors as we prepare health professionals for the future. I would like our donors to know that we honor every gift as your personal commitment and investment in our mission. We are truly grateful you have chosen to support the College and our outstanding students. 

I look forward to meeting you in the near future.
