JANEEN HILL
DEAN OF THE CREAN COLLEGE OF HEALTH AND BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES
CHAPMAN UNIVERSITY

WHY: Joined faculty in 1997, serving a variety of roles such as president of Faculty Senate, chairing departments of kinesiology and biological sciences and dean of the science and technology department. Served as acting vice president for research for a year until Chapman named Martina Nieswandt to the role.

BY THE NUMBERS: Chapman’s physician assistant program recently broke the top 100 in its first-ever ranking in U.S. News & World Report’s Best Health Schools. The program was ranked No. 96, putting Chapman in the top third of accredited PA programs nationwide, the school said.

FUTURE PLANS: Educating future providers, such as physicians, physician assistants, physical therapists and speech language therapists with expertise in the diseases of aging to better serve Orange County’s aging population.

IN THEIR WORDS: “This area has so much to offer emerging talent, but the promise of an ideal climate, strong public and private schools, a concentration of biotech companies and hospital systems is insufficient to offset our housing crisis.”
