Dean, College of Health Professions


Texas State University invites nominations, applications, and expressions of interest in its search for the next dean of the College of Health Professions. The university seeks a collaborative, collegial, and visionary leader with a demonstrated ability to work across a diverse set of health science disciplines.

The College of Health Professions prepares students for careers in the healthcare field. Through its professional, technical, clinical, and academic programs, the college serves as an advocate for change and improvement in the field of healthcare services. The college also serves as a catalyst to expand and improve public perceptions of healthcare in the community. The college has 2,934 undergraduate students, 264 master’s students, 126 doctoral students, 103 full-time faculty, and 36 staff. Almost 1,800 affiliation agreements are maintained to provide clinicals, internships, and field experiences for the students. In addition to these academic units, the college also encompasses a specialized computer lab, the Institute of Texas Long Term Care, clinics for Physical Therapy and Speech Language Hearing, and the Ascension Seton Williamson Sleep Center.

The College of Health Professions offers programs at the university's newest campus in Round Rock, located just north of Austin, and the San Marcos Campus, where the central administration of the university is housed. As both campuses are located in the Austin Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) – one of the fastest growing in the country – there is significant potential for the college and the next dean to leverage opportunities these locations present.

Texas State encompasses multiple campuses and locations across central Texas; employs more than 7,000 faculty, staff, and students; and offers its 38,000 students 99 bachelor’s, 92 master’s and specialists, and 14 doctoral degree programs through the following colleges: Applied Arts, McCoy College of Business, Education, Fine Arts and Communication, Health Professions, Liberal Arts, Science and Engineering, and University College. The university also has The Graduate College and an Honors College. The university's students are diverse, closely reflecting the demographics of the State of Texas. Texas State recently celebrated its 11th anniversary as a Hispanic Serving Institution and earned the Seal of Excelencia from Excelencia in Education in September 2022. The university is currently classified as a Doctoral University: High Research Activity (R2) by the Carnegie Classification system and is laser-focused on continuing to raise its national research profile and become an R1 university.
