It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of Dr. George Goodman, Logan’s sixth president. Dr. Goodman, a 1968 graduate, served as Logan’s longest-serving president. Spanning 45 years, Dr. Goodman’s career at Logan included teaching and developing the postgraduate department at Logan. After spending ten years as Vice President of Chiropractic Affairs, Dr. Goodman was ready to pursue one of the greatest roles of his professional life. On February 6, 1993, Dr. Goodman was inaugurated as president.
Within the first two years of Dr. Goodman’s presidency, Logan reached debt-free status and enrollment in his third year exceeded the 1,000 mark for the first time in Logan’s history. Evidence of Dr. Goodman’s leadership abounds on the Logan campus today with the William M. Harris DC Sports and Wellness Center, the renovated Learning Resources Center, William D. Purser DC Center, Standard Process Student Center and the Educational Wing. His contributions transformed the campus to the modern and premier campus of today.
Dr. Clay McDonald, Logan University’s current president said, “The loss of Dr. Goodman and his dedication to the chiropractic profession and Logan is a huge loss. We pass along our thoughts and prayers to Dr. Goodman’s family.”
