February 2019 Alumni Newsletter

Bill Mathis
Jim Ciesla, Dean
At the midpoint of my first year at BGSU I am very happy to say that I feel fortunate to serve as dean of the College of Health and Human Services! Our students are eager to learn, faculty are talented and highly engaged, and staff are dedicated and enterprising. I have been fortunate to meet many CHHS graduates, friends, and supporters and I proceed with a very strong sense that this college is poised to grow and thrive. You can learn more about our plans for the college in a recent Q&A shared below.

As we embark on this semester our efforts will be guided by the University’s strategic planning process. We have begun on our own strategic planning activities, and we will be reaching out to our many constituents—alumni, friends, and students to have a voice.

This issue showcases some of the many students, faculty, and staff that I proudly call my collaborators in advancing the college. As well, we are proud to announce a new Master of Health Services Administration degree program.

Alumni and friends, you are critical to our mission, like Dr. Michael and Robin French who give back to our students and faculty. Thank you for offering opportunities for our students to do research or complete internships. Thank you for returning to the college as examples of people who are successful professionally, but who also live lives of social responsibility and civic engagement. Thank you for your financial gifts, your encouragement and your commitment to the immeasurable value of a BGSU education. We can accomplish many things together.

Warmest regards,

Jim Ciesla, Ph.D.

Dr. Jim Ciesla
