Stephan Davis, DNP, MHSA, FACHE, MHA Director and Assistant Professor at the University of North Texas Health Science Center (HSC) School of Public Health, has been appointed to the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) Council of Regents, the organization’s national legislative body.

The Council of Regents serves as the link between ACHE and members by approving governance and membership regulations as well as promoting ACHE programs, services and activities within their respective areas.

The role of the Regent-at-Large is to promote diversity in the governance of ACHE with respect to race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation or disability. Dr. Davis’ appointment builds on his work related to diversity, equity and inclusion, as well as his work over the years with ACHE. He currently serves on ACHE’s national faculty and as Chair of the ACHE LGBTQ Forum. He has presented at Congress and via national ACHE webinars on diversity, equity and inclusion. Dr. Davis also recently contributed to a national report on advancing diversity and inclusion in health professions learning environments with the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation. He will be one of six ACHE nationally-appointed Fellows to serve as Regent-at-Large.

ACHE is an international professional society of more than 48,000 healthcare executives leading hospitals, healthcare systems and other healthcare organizations. ACHE’s mission is to advance healthcare management excellence.

Dr. Davis joined the HSC School of Public Health in May 2020. Since then, the MHA program faculty have revised the program mission and vision statements and established diversity, equity and inclusion as a programmatic cornerstone.
