The dean of the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine will soon be searching for land for a new campus in Columbus.
Jack Brose is retiring as dean, but will take on new responsibilities in the Provost's office as the university's Senior Executive Director for Health Services and Special Assistant to the Executive Vice President and Provost.
In that role, Brose will be working to open a new central Ohio regional extension campus. He will help to raise funds for the project and is looking at property for the new campus.
"There are other initiatives that we're starting around the state and that involve all the healthcare related colleges at Ohio University that I'll be going out and helping to push forward," Brose said.
Brose is not new to fundraising. He helped raise funds for the Academic and Research Center which houses state of the art research projects. The Academic and Research Center was opened in May 2010.
No one is assigned to replace Brose as the next dean of the College of Medicine.
The Provost is creating a committee to decide who the next dean will be and hopes to find a replacement by May.
Brose says he decided to retire as dean of the College of Medicine to take on a new set of responsibilities and to spend more time with his grandchildren.
He will offically retire as dean in July, 2012.
