Momentous things have been happening at Pacific. In a few short months we will be welcoming to our campuses a new president and two new deans. These three dynamic individuals have a passion for student success and embody the Pacific spirit of collaboration and innovation.
Rae Matsumoto, PhD has been named the next dean of the Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy. Dr. Matsumoto is an outstanding teacher, accomplished researcher and proven academic administrator. A special commendation to Nader Nadershahi, dean of the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry, who chaired the search committee, and to each individual who played a part in the search process. I think they found a gem and I am personally very excited to welcome Dr. Matsumoto to the Pacific family. I will continue to serve as dean until she joins us on July 1.
I had the honor of leading the search for the founding dean of the School of Health Sciences. On June 1, the Sacramento campus will welcome Nicoleta L. Bugnariu, PT, PhD, EMBA. Her experience as a health care provider, researcher and administrator has prepared her to take the helm of Pacific’s newest school.
Pacific is entering a new chapter under the leadership of President Designate Christopher Callahan. A first-generation college graduate, Callahan knows from experience the power of higher education. He believes Pacific is uniquely situated to leverage its strengths: our engaged, diverse student body and alumni, plus dedicated faculty and staff. He also highlights the University’s mix of highly respected liberal arts college and robust professional programs.
New leadership brings a time for nurturing the areas where we thrive and for sharing fresh, new ideas. Together we are writing the story of Pacific. I challenge you to ask yourself, “What is my part of the story?”
