As this issue of Insights went to
press, the College announced that
Vice Chancellor for Academic
Affairs Dr. Dennis Marchiori had
accepted the position of the
chancellor of Palmer College of
Chiropractic. The selection of Dr. Marchiori, which followed an
extensive search to find the most qualified individual for the role, is
something all Palmer graduates can be proud of. You’ll find details
on the search process on the next page.
I think you’ll also be pleased to know that the presidents of each
Palmer campus are now involved in an initiative to reconnect with
their graduates by visiting with a handful of alumni in the towns
and cities where they live. These casual meetings have given Drs.
Kern, Martin and Meeker the chance to talk firsthand with alumni
and find out some of their needs and concerns. As the presidents
learn about what these graduates believe would help them with
their own careers, the College can translate these ideas into
programs that can better prepare future graduates for the world
that awaits them once they receive their diplomas.
Helping alumni address some of the issues they face every day has
been a driving force for all of us in the Alumni Office. That’s why
we’re particularly proud of the new Palmer College/Staples
By signing up for the Advantage plan, you’ll receive the same
discounts on Staples items that are available to Palmer College,
leaving you with more money to put back into your business.
Plus, four percent of each purchase you make will go toward
Palmer College’s Annual Fund, which supports scholarships,
research and campus improvements.
To register for the program, go to www.staplesadvantage.com/
palmer. Once you see how simple it is to join, we think you’ll
say, as they do in the Staples ads, “That was easy.”
The other day I received an e-mail from an alumnus who wanted to
know how he could become a member of the alumni association so
that he could be in the Advantage program. He also wanted to
know what dues he’d have to pay to take advantage of the plan.
What he and other alumni with the same questions have been
pleased to learn is that all Palmer alumni are automatically
members of the alumni association and that no fees are charged
for belonging or for any of its services.
Finally, I’d like to thank each and every one of you who completed
the reply card on the Palmer College of Chiropractic Alumni
Association mailer we sent out this summer. The response has been
fantastic and an invaluable means of developing future programs.
