His appointment was unanimously approved by the University of North Texas System Board of Regents at their regular meeting on Nov. 18.

“We’re very delighted that you’re taking this position,” said Board of Regents Chairman Bobby Ray.
In his comments to the board, UNTHSC President Ronald Blanck, DO, expressed regret on behalf of the health science center at the loss of Dr. McQueen as an employee.

Dr. McQueen has served as senior vice president of academic affairs at the health science center since September 2002. In this position, Dr. McQueen has overseen the reorganization of the office of student affairs, the office of research and biotechnology administration and put in place the library task force “Creating the Library of the Future.” He was also instrumental in the creation of the new School of Health Professions and is currently working to bring a new School of Pharmacy to the health science center. Dr. McQueen has also served as the UNTHSC compliance officer since 1998.

Prior to his appointment as senior vice president of academic affairs at the health science center, Dr. McQueen had served as vice provost for health affairs, acting vice president for advancement, interim executive director of the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine Foundation, associate vice president for institutional planning and health affairs, director of international health-related programs, assistant vice president for health affairs, and assistant to the dean of the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine.

“Dr. McQueen’s departure will leave a gap in the institutional history and knowledge that will not be easy to fill,” Dr. Blanck said.

Dr. McQueen began his career at the health science center in 1989 after working with several universities, as well as for the World Bank. He earned a doctorate in higher education administration and business at the University of North Texas, a master’s degree in health education at the State University of New York at Brockport, a bachelor of physical education degree at McMaster University in Canada, and a bachelor of arts degree in geography from Wilfred Laurier University in Canada.

Indicating his excitement about his new position at the University of North Texas, Dr. McQueen also expressed his sadness at leaving the health science center. “My 17 years at the health science center have been the most rewarding and enjoyable of my career because of the outstanding individuals I had the privilege to work with at the health science center,” Dr. McQueen said. “It is the people I will miss most. They make this a great place to be.”

Dr. McQueen is scheduled to leave the health science center Dec. 31, and begin his new position as senior vice president for advancement on Jan. 1, 2005.

According to Dr. Blanck, the acting senior vice president of academic affairs for the health science center will be Warren Anderson, EdD.
