Margaret M. Andrews Appointed Founding Dean of University of Michigan-Flint’s School of Nursing

The University of Michigan-Flint (UM-Flint) recently announced that Margaret M. Andrews has been appointed the founding dean of the School of Nursing. Andrews joined UM-Flint as a professor in 2006 and has served as interim dean of the School of Nursing since its creation in November 2016. She previously served as director of the UM-Flint Department of Nursing for 10 years.

Andrews tells News.UMFlint.edu, “It’s an honor and privilege to be the founding dean of the School of Nursing. I thank President Schlissel, the Regents, Chancellor Borrego, Provost Knerr, and the School of Nursing faculty and staff for their confidence in me.”

Andrews has announced that her primary goal for the School of Nursing is to establish a renewed commitment to research, which will be integral to the school’s 2018-2023 strategic plan. The School of Nursing faculty have invited top leaders in research as visiting professors to consult with nursing students and faculty on the school’s research agenda.

Andrews received her bachelor of science in nursing degree from St. John College in 1972, her master of science in nursing degree from Case Western Reserve University in 1974, and her PhD from the University of Utah in 1985.
