Dr. Christine Hinko announces 2014 retirement

Dr. Christine Hinko, Executive Associate Dean of the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences and Associate Dean for Student Affairs, is retiring at the end of the calendar year. Under her leadership, the college has developed a very effective infrastructure and delivery program for student affairs, and the college has seen significant enrollment growth.

Dr. Hinko’s influence on the college is significant, as has been her support for students, faculty and staff over the years. Dr. Hinko led the efforts to create seamless Student Affairs operations on two campuses and effectively integrated technology into advising and communicating with students. In her fifteen years of leading the Office of Student Affairs, she has created a template for success. In short, she has big shoes to fill. Dr. Hinko’s retirement celebration is being planned by the college, and she has requested that any gifts be made in the form of donations to her scholarship fund.

Through an internal search, talent within the college was identified, and a strategy was developed for continual focus on the unique needs of the student populations on both the Main Campus and Health Science Campus.

In January 2015, Dr. Mary Powers, professor of Pharmacy Practice, will assume the role of Associate Dean for Main Campus Student Affairs and Enrollment Management. Dr. Powers has a history of involvement with the college’s direct-from-high school population and is a respected community pharmacist and residency program director.

Dr. Monica Holiday-Goodman will serve as Associate Dean for Health Science Campus Student Affairs and Diversity. Dr. Holiday-Goodman’s service as co-chair of the Admissions committee and Chair of the Human Diversity committee have prepared her to support professional division and graduate students.

These new appointments harness the tremendous talent found within the faculty of the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences and provide ample support for the development of our students into professionals and practitioners.
