As many of you are aware, we have initiated the Institutional reaccreditation process with SACSCOC (The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges) and their on-site visit is scheduled for the end of March.
For more than 25 years, the Health Science Center (HSC) has provided services through our in-house accredited office of continuing education, now known as INCEDO. INCEDO offers a vast array of innovative learning activities and solutions to improve the knowledge of health care professionals while having a positive impact on patient health and community health outcomes.
This summer has been a whirlwind of activity thus far and we’re just getting started!
I am pleased to share Dr. Scott Walters, Regents Professor and Chair of the Department of Health Behavior and Health Systems in our School of Public Health, has been appointed Steering Committee Chair for the landmark HEALing Communities Study (Helping to End Addiction Long-term).
I am pleased to share our recently approved HSC Faculty Policies and Bylaws. This was definitely a team effort and I am incredibly proud of the collaborative, thoughtful deliberation as well as the time, energy and effort put forth to achieve this important milestone.
