Welcome to the Fall 2013 College of Health Sciences e-newsletter. It is my pleasure to share with you some recent exciting happenings in the college.
As you know, Marquette University is currently engaged in a search for its 24th president. I was pleased to be asked to serve as a member of the selection committee, and will work to ensure that the academic excellence and research at Marquette is well represented in the search effort.
The College of Health Sciences represents one particularly strong example of that academic excellence, a fact showcased in the inaugural issue of the College of Health Sciences Magazine. The magazine highlights students, faculty and alumni across the college through feature articles, news, research updates and alumni quotes and thoughts. Features in the inaugural issue include a question-and-answer session with a group of our gross anatomy teaching assistants, an inside look at our post-graduate residencies in the Physical Therapy and Physician Assistant Studies programs, and a feature on the distinctive collaborative neuroscience research environment created by faculty in the Biomedical Sciences department.
Our Marquette Presents series continues to provide scientific perspectives on important community health issues. The most recent forum focused on addiction and featured college faculty, including Drs. John Mantsch and Robert Wheeler from our Biomedical Sciences department. The full panel video is available on our website.
We also welcomed our largest incoming class of 282 freshmen, our most selective and academically talented group to date. Our students and faculty continue to excel, including developing new adaptive sports programs and garnering prestigious awards.
In September the college also welcomed four new faculty members and a new college chaplain, Fr. John Schlegel, S.J.
I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank Dan and Susan Real, Marquette alumni and friends of the College of Health Sciences, who generously donated $250,000 to the college to establish a scholarship for economically disadvantaged students seeking professional degrees.
