Associate Dean for Student Affairs

It is a pleasure for me to announce that after a national search, I have appointed Dr. David Henderson to be Associate Dean for Student Affairs beginning July 1, 2010. Dr. Henderson is an Associate Professor in the Department of Family Medicine and as many of you may recall, Dr. Henderson was previously appointed to the position on an interim basis in the 2008 - 2009 academic year during Dr. Ardolino's sabbatical. During that period of time he served students and the institution extremely well. We look forward to Dr. Henderson's smooth transition into the position on a permanent basis. He has stated that he plans to continue the "open door policy" established by Dr. Ardolino, and the high level of support that students have come to expect from the Office of Student Affairs. Please join in congratulating Dr. Henderson on his new position.

Thank you.
