Welcome to Texas State University, School of Health Administration. I have assumed the new role as Director for the School effective 1 September, 2014 and look forward to being a part of the exciting future for the school and the career field of health administration education.
The field of health administration education continues to grow and shows great promise as a long-term career field for our graduates. Our mission at the School is “To prepare health leaders to serve in a variety of diverse healthcare environments and add to the body of knowledge in our fields.” Our vision is to “To be the health administration school of choice for students, faculty, alumni and employers.” Obviously, to accomplish this we need the full efforts of all faculty, staff, students, alumni, preceptor and employers associated with our school to work together.
We are focusing on more meaningful and sustained alumni involvement in the School, and we have many new exciting initiatives to help us on that path. I am in the process of completing the new strategic plan for the school for 2015-2020, and am using the Balanced Scorecard method to assist in this process. One of my goals will be complete transparency, so I will be posting the full scorecard, as well as student outcomes prominently on the website.
I look forward to working with everyone as we focus on making the School of Health Administration on of the best in the Nation. We have a tremendous group of faculty & staff, students, alumni and employers that will only grow in numbers and talent in the future. Please do not hesitate to contact me in regards to this website, or any other issue. Again, I look forward to what we will all collectively accomplish in the future.
