President’s Letter – September 2021
Welcome to the September 2021 issue of Roseman University’s spectRUm eNews. This time of year is always a special one for me, as it marks the beginning of a new year of teaching and learning. It’s an opportunity to educate and prepare new generations of healthcare professionals to provide exceptional patient care and help transform the future of healthcare in Nevada, Utah and across the country.
Over the past few weeks, we welcomed hundreds of new students and residents to our Henderson and South Jordan campuses. Each comes to Roseman with their own unique talents, skills and knowledge, but also fears, self-doubts and challenges. Fortunately, they’ve chosen a University that will help them use their strengths and weaknesses to help each other succeed. Likewise, our supportive faculty, staff and peers are committed to helping everyone aspire to reach levels of achievement they may have never thought possible. I wish them all the best of luck as they get fully immersed in the Roseman learning experience, and I look forward to seeing all of their accomplishments over the coming year.
A lot has happened at Roseman since the last issue of spectRUm at the beginning of summer. Most notable is Jeremy Wells taking the helm as Chancellor of the South Jordan campus. He comes to Roseman with 12 years of experience in leadership positions at private health sciences-focused institutions. As our new Chancellor, Jeremy will have both academic and fiscal oversight for academic programs at Roseman’s South Jordan campus, as well as administrative oversight of campus operations. He undoubtedly will play an important role in ensuring the continued success of our academic programs and plan for future growth of our South Jordan campus community. You can learn more about Jeremy in this edition of spectRUm.
Last month I also had the honor of signing a partnership agreement with Nevada State College creating a new Fast-Track BS/PharmD program. Through this first-of-its-kind partnership in Nevada, students at Nevada State College will get a head start on their professional careers, enabling them to enter the pharmacy profession in less time and for less money. The partnership further strengthens Roseman’s and Nevada State College’s shared mission to educate future generations of healthcare professionals. I invite you to learn more about the program in this edition of spectRUm.
I’d like to close by acknowledging all of our students, residents, faculty and staff who continue to persevere through the COVID-19 pandemic. Everyone has contributed to the ongoing safety of our campus communities as we continue to navigate the evolving and ongoing crisis. The teaching and learning at Roseman has never stopped during these unprecedented times due to the responsiveness, ingenuity and dedication of everyone at Roseman. Our “Roseman Strong” mantra always rings true!
