This summer, Crean College of Health and Behavioral Sciences becomes Chapman University’s newest college. As part of the University’s continued growth in the sciences, Crean College will officially split from the Schmid College of Science and Technology on June 1 and be led by Dean Janeen Hill, Ph.D., the present dean of Schmid.
Chancellor Daniele Struppa said the creation of the new college continues an “exciting phase in the life of Chapman University.”
“I expect the new college to build on its existing research strengths in health and behavioral psychology as a focused area of research excellence that will continue to attract exceptional faculty and students,” Hill said. “I’m excited to lead a college with seemingly limitless potential.”
The disciplines encompassed in Crean College will include marriage and familytherapy, physical therapy, psychology, health science and the new physician assistant program, scheduled to begin in January 2015.
Schmid College will be home to biological sciences, biochemistry, chemistry, computer science, computational science, environmental science, mathematics, software engineering, physics and food science.
