Curtis named Assistant Department Head of Public Health Studies
The Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Public Health is pleased to announce that Don Curtis, Ph.D., has accepted the position of Assistant Department Head in the Department of Public Health Studies effective March 2, 2015.
Curtis currently serves as Assistant Dean for High Impact Programs at the Texas A&M College of Liberal Arts. He has over two decades of administrative experience in higher education and will work to build and expand the Bachelor of Science in Public Health program.
“I have always enjoyed the challenge of building programs, creating infrastructure and helping students grow and develop,” Curtis said. “Public Health is a field that is poised to experience exponential growth in the next decade, and our goal is to create the premier undergraduate Public Health Studies program not just in Texas or the Southwest, but in the United States. I am excited to get started, and look forward to working with stakeholders throughout the Texas A&M System and our state to build this program.”
Curtis, long known as a student advocate, received the Wells Fargo Faculty Mentor of the Year Award in 2014 and was a 2013 Fish Camp namesake.
