Message from the Dean: Appointment of Term Chairs

Friday, April 28, 2017

It is my pleasure to announce the appointment of two term chairs in the School of Nursing which have recently received Board of Trustees approval. Previously Dr. Gilliss, as chair of the Distinguished Professors Committee, sent out two emails and then presented yesterday in FGA regarding the process used to select the individuals. Their terms are July 1, 2017 - June 30, 2020 and are not renewable. In Fall of 2019, the DP committee will again recommend to me, and I to the Provost, two more individuals to be appointed as holders of the Term Chairs.

Ryan Shaw, PhD, RN, Elizabeth C Clipp Term Chair of Nursing and Allison Vorderstrasse, DNSc, APRN, CNE, FAAN, Dorothy L. Powell Term Chair of Nursing.

Congratulations Ryan and Allison!!
