Dan Weinert, D.C., M.S., DACRB, has been appointed to the position of Campus Provost for the Davenport Campus, effective July 1, 2011. In this role, he will serve as the academic leader for the Davenport Campus, responsible for directing the educational programs and academic support activities, including graduate and undergraduate programs. Additionally, he will provide leadership for campus initiatives and coordinate the day-to-day needs of the campus in support of the College’s strategic plan and executive administrative team.

This appointment is part of ongoing efforts by Chancellor Dennis Marchiori, D.C., Ph.D., to address the need to be more efficient in all areas of administration in the context of the College’s current and future strategic priorities.

“I am excited and honored to have this opportunity,” said Dr. Weinert. “I will make every effort to lead and support faculty, staff and students in bringing out the potential within our institution.”

Dr. Weinert graduated from Palmer’s Davenport Campus in 1996, and earned his Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Rehabilitation Board in 2000. He holds a B.S. degree from Northern Michigan University and an M.S. degree from the University of Massachusetts. He is currently in the latter stages of earning a Ph.D. in higher education, policy and leadership at the University of Iowa. His most recent administrative role was interim vice president for Academic Affairs. Previously, Dr. Weinert served as Dean of Academic Programs on the Davenport Campus from 2006 to 2011, and was the Diagnosis and Radiology Department Chair on the Davenport Campus from 2003 to 2006. In addition to his administrative role, he is a professor in the Life Sciences Department for the Davenport Campus and has taught biochemistry from 2001 to the present. After graduating from Palmer College’s rehabilitation residency, he joined the Palmer faculty in 1999 as a faculty clinician in the Chiropractic Rehabilitation and Sports Injury Department. He has since taught anatomy/physiology, physiotherapy and biomechanics courses at Palmer.

“I look forward to working with Dr. Weinert in his new leadership role on the Davenport Campus,” said Chancellor Marchiori. “With his academic credentials, experience as Dean of Academic Programs and clear dedication to student learning, he models our institutional focus on being The Trusted Leader in Chiropractic Education.”
