Over the past few months, our faculty and staff have worked tirelessly to provide an excellent remote and hybrid educational experience for our students. While the pandemic has had many disruptive effects, we have continued to support our faculty and students. I am particularly proud of the dedication and ingenuity of our faculty in delivering their courses, as well as the perseverance and commitment of our students in a remote learning environment. I am confident in the resilience of our school because of our dedicated faculty and staff and our hard-working students.
Change is a part of Health Sciences; discipline evolves as science evolves. I am very proud to serve the faculty, staff and students as School Director, and as we change and grow, we realize that we must do this to keep pace with new research-science and the market demand. In athletic training, for example, there is a new undergraduate program (sports medicine); a new online EdD program that is college wide (EHHS) where athletic training has a cognate so that the individuals can pursue academic careers. Lastly, exercise science is adding another concentration option called “Strength and Conditioning” to keep pace with the NSCA/ACSM requirements. Our research laboratories are now open and data collection is beginning once again as we begin too slowly “re-open”.
I want to welcome everyone back and wish everyone health and happiness.
