Dr. Ray Stowers has been named provost and vice president of academic affairs of Arkansas Colleges of Health Education in Fort Smith, the school announced Friday (Dec. 14).
Dr. Rance McClain was hired as the new dean of the Arkansas College of Osteopathic Medicine. He will start in his new position Jan. 1.
“As ACHE continues to grow at an accelerated pace, the need for a provost and vice president of academic affairs has become imperative,” said Kyle Parker, president and chief executive officer of ACHE.
“We couldn’t ask for a more qualified person than Dr. Stowers, who was recently presented the American Osteopathic Foundation’s Lifetime Achievement Award for his significant fundamental contributions to the osteopathic profession and demonstrated lifetime of commitment to osteopathic medicine, its principals, and its practice. He has over 20 years of proven leadership in academic affairs and is a perfect fit to lead our academics as we continue to add more colleges and programs to ACHE,” Parker said.
