H. Glenn Anderson Jr., Pharm. D., has been named Dean of the University of Louisiana Monroe College of Health and Pharmaceutical Sciences and Dean of the School of Pharmacy, according to Eric Pani, Vice President of Academic Affairs, who made the announcement Friday.
Anderson starts Aug. 1.
Since 2011, Anderson has been at Marshall University School of Pharmacy in Huntington, W.V., where he currently serves as Professor of Pharmacy Practice, Administration, and Research and Associate Dean of Academic and Curricular Affairs. He was a founding faculty member of the Marshall School of Pharmacy in 2011.
“I am excited Dr. Anderson is joining ULM. He has an impressive background as a scientist, faculty member and administrator, and I am confident he will do a stellar job here. I know that everyone will welcome him and his family as they begin this new chapter in their lives,” Pani said.
From 1996 to 2011, Anderson held multiple positions at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, School of Pharmacy, in Amarillo, including being a founding faculty member in 1996.
He earned his Pharm. D. from Ohio State University in 1994 and his Post-Doctoral Fellowship, Drug Information, from Ohio State in 1996. Anderson is a member of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy and the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists.
Anderson said he is looking forward to joining the ULM leadership, and sees the College of Health and Pharmaceutical Sciences and College of Pharmacy as poised to significantly improve healthcare in northeast Louisiana.
“Health Sciences practitioners – such as nurses, pharmacists, and others - have the potential to address the growing healthcare disparity we are experiencing across the country,” Anderson said. “This represents a true opportunity to ‘make a difference’ in the lives of patients. The College of Health and Pharmaceutical Sciences, housing the diverse programs that it does, is uniquely positioned to address such disparity and make a difference in our community. That’s exciting, that’s something I want to be part of.”
Anderson is filling the position of Dean Benny Blaylock, who is retiring from administrative duties and returning to the classroom.
“I want to thank Benny Blaylock for his service as Dean of the College of Health and Pharmaceutical Sciences and Dean of the School of Pharmacy. He has provided sound leadership during difficult times, and I wish him well as he rejoins our faculty,” Pani said.
