Manchester College School of Pharmacy seeks new dean

Founding dean Philip Medon resigns for health reasons

NORTH MANCHESTER, Ind. — Manchester College is looking for a new leader for its pharmacy school, the private university's president said Tuesday.

The school's vice president and founding dean, Philip Medon, has resigned for health-related reasons, prompting the university to launch a nationwide search for a new dean. Medon joined the school last year. The school currently has 23 faculty and offers a four-year professional doctoral program. Classes are set to begin in August 2012.

"We are grateful that dean Medon has led the School of Pharmacy through several significant stages in its growth since his arrival in 2010," university president Jo Young Switzer said. "He has hired an exceptional team of faculty and administrators, and the accreditation agency has expressed confidence with the leadership transition plan we have put in place."
