Megan McClelland joined CPHHS Dean Javier Nieto for a six-day visit to the Faculty of Health Sciences (FHS) at the American University of Beirut (AUB).
College of Public Health and Human Sciences Dean Javier Nieto was recently featured as an expert in the Boston University School of Public Health’s annual report. The project features 24 public health deans and directors, past and present, from schools and programs across the country and asks them to provide insight into today’s public health challenges and opportunities.
“My recent experience as department chair at the University of Wisconsin-Madison reinforced my appreciation about the qualities of a true leader, which is not the same as a ‘boss.’ The way I see it, the dean works for the college faculty, staff and students. The dean’s job is to be a facilitator, to help create an environment where researchers, teachers and learners thrive. In our college that means helping researchers on their pursuit of scientific discoveries to improve population health and well-being and fostering a collegial and respectful environment where our teachers have the resources to guarantee student success.”
