After a three-month search, nationally acclaimed educator Ann Cary was named dean of the School of Nursing and Health Studies.
Cary, who served as director of the Loyola University New Orleans School of Nursing, succeeds Lora Lacey-Haun, who served as dean since 2004.
“Her experience and leadership in nursing and health care education will help guide the school into the future as it continues to evolve and expand to meet the demand for health professionals,” says Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Gail Hackett.
Earlier this year, the school also added Health Studies to its name to reflect the growth of its offerings. The school has expanded beyond nursing programs to meet broader health care needs.
