Detroit Mercy has appointed Neal Rosenburg, Ph.D., M.S., RN, as the new dean of the College of Health Professions (CHP) and McAuley School of Nursing (MSON). His first day is Monday, Oct. 9. He replaces Christine Pacini, Ph.D., RN, who has led the CHP for nearly eight years.
Pamela Zarkowski, provost and vice president for Academic Affairs at Detroit Mercy, noted that Rosenburg is the right person to lead the CHP and MSON following many years of sustained achievement and success.
“Rosenburg brings a great deal of expertise, experience and success to Detroit Mercy, and we look forward to his efforts building on the exceptional quality and student success his predecessor achieved during her career as dean,” she said.
“I am excited to join University of Detroit Mercy,” Rosenburg said. “I admire the accomplishments of the College of Health Professions and the McAuley School of Nursing. The faculty members are leaders in health care in Michigan and across the nation, and it’s a true pleasure to have been selected to lead such a committed group of students, faculty and staff. I look forward to sharing and learning with this team as we build upon the successes of the past, while looking ahead to a future of creating stronger, caring experiences of health care delivery during this increasingly complex and continuously shifting health care landscape across our nation.”
