Allen Misher Pays Visit to Namesake College that Continues to Expand
Allen Misher P'59, PhD, HonDSc'95 paid a visit to the arts and sciences college that was named in his honor to see first-hand how it has broadened its programs to continue teaching those interested in humanities and science.
Interim Dean Vojislava Pophristic PhD, students, faculty, and staff joined Dr. Misher’s tour that began in Griffith Hall. From there, the group visited the lab of the Brewing Science Laboratory, built to support the Brewing Science Certificate Program, and multiple biochemistry, biology, and chemistry laboratories. Dr. Misher toured facilities in newer buildings on campus including the Integrated Professional Education Complex (IPEX) and Science and Technology Center (STC).
In the years since Dr. Misher’s last visit and his tenure as president from 1984 through 1994, there have been new and expanded programs including medical humanities, a master’s degree in physics, psychology, and data science.
“He was very excited that we are broadening the offerings in humanities and sciences," said Dr. Pophristic.
When Dr. Misher created the college, his goal was to broaden the education of University of the Sciences graduates; years later, that same goal continues to be achieved with new programs, degrees, and certificates being announced. On October 16, 2019, a new certificate in Spanish for Healthcare Professionals was unveiled.
Though the technology, laboratories, and campus may look a little different over the years, the goal remains the same: to prepare the next generation of leaders in health sciences.
