Wittmann-Price named dean of School of Health Sciences
Francis Marion University President Dr. Fred Carter has appointed Dr. Ruth Wittmann-Price as Dean of FMU’s new School of Health Sciences. The appointment was immediate and based on a recommendation of the faculty.
Wittmann-Price is veteran of nursing and nursing education, and is a widely published scholar on the subject of nursing education. She came to FMU in 2010 as chair of the Department of Nursing. She is a graduate of Felician College in Lodi, N.J. and earned her doctorate from Widener University.
The newly created School of Health Sciences will officially begin operations on July 1, 2016. It is the third discrete academic school at FMU, joining the School of Business and School of Education. All other academic programs at the university are housed in the College of Liberal Arts.
The School of Health Science will include FMU’s undergraduate and graduate programs in nursing, and will be home to a variety of new graduate-level healthcare programs scheduled to come online in future years.
