Bruin Notes

Schools added in academic restructuring

George Fox University’s academic offices were restructured last summer in an effort to better integrate undergraduate and graduate programs. In the new structure, each discipline is overseen by one dean throughout both programs.

The university now operates with five schools, adding two new schools to join the School of Education, the School of Management, and George Fox Evangelical Seminary. New are the School of Behavioral and Health Sciences and the School of Arts and Sciences.

The School of Behavioral and Health Sciences was formed with the departments of undergraduate psychology, clinical psychology, sociology/social work, health and human performance, and the new nursing program.

The School of Arts and Sciences includes the departments of biology and chemistry, communication arts, family and consumer science, history and political science, math, engineering, computer science, performing arts, religious studies, visual arts, and writing/literature. University provost Robin Baker, who initiated the change, oversees the five schools.
