Palmer Chancellor Announces Succession Plan for Davenport Campus
In response to the
November 9, 2010, retirement announcement of long-time Davenport
Campus President Donald P. Kern, D.C., Palmer College of Chiropractic Chancellor
Dennis Marchiori, D.C., Ph.D., has announced his leadership succession plan for
the main campus.
“Having been in the
chancellor’s seat for nearly a year, I have had the opportunity to fully review
our organizational structure,” said Dr. Marchiori. “We have a strong team of
College-level senior administrators here in Davenport at the main campus as well
as a deep pool of campus-specific department leaders. It is my intent to take
advantage of these existing resources and distribute the responsibilities of Dr.
Kern’s campus president role among appropriate members of this team.”
Dr. Marchiori pointed
out that by reassigning the president’s duties, the College will improve
efficiency and eliminate redundant layers in the overall administrative
structure on the campus.
“While my role as
chancellor is to oversee the entire College, I certainly hope to use this
opportunity to facilitate closer interaction between my office and the main
campus community,” said Dr. Marchiori.
