Logan College President George Goodman to Retire in 2013
Dr. Goodman’s leadership resulted in significant accomplishments
October 18, 2012
Logan College of Chiropractic/University Programs President George Goodman, D.C. announced today that he will retire as President by March 31, 2013. Dr. Goodman has led Logan for two decades and is responsible for growing enrollment, expanding programs and establishing an endowment and investment base of more than $25 million.
“I am honored to have been a part of Logan during such a dynamic period in this institution’s history,” said Dr. Goodman. “When we started two decades ago, the institution had significant debt and operating challenges. I was able to work with many talented people to deal with those issues, developing and growing Logan in ways that benefit our students, faculty and the surrounding community.”
Two years ago Dr. Goodman agreed to extend his stay as President from 2012 until 2014 in large part because a reaccreditation review was scheduled to occur in late 2014. It was important to both Dr. Goodman and Logan’s Board of Trustees to have an established leadership team in place when that evaluation and site visit took place. Recently, the reaccreditation process site visit was delayed until 2015. Because of that delay, Dr. Goodman shifted his retirement date to 2013. This transition plan ensures that a new President will be in place well before the reaccreditation process begins.
“President Goodman’s leadership has been invaluable to Logan, and his passion and commitment to our mission have been steadfast,” said Steven Roberts, Chair of the Board of Trustees. “On behalf of the board and Logan, I want to express our deep gratitude for his service and outstanding leadership. Logan and the field of chiropractic are better off because of Dr. Goodman.”
Under Dr. Goodman's guidance as President since 1993, Logan College has achieved several significant milestones, including reaching debt-free status; enrolling 1,000 students for the first time in the school's history; and winning federal grants for infrastructure, technology and research.
Before being appointed President, Dr. Goodman served for 10 years as Logan's Vice President of Chiropractic Affairs and also held the posts of Clinic Director and Dean of the School of Postgraduate Education at Logan. A tenured professor, Dr. Goodman has been a member of the Logan faculty for 44 years and spent 20 years in private chiropractic practice.
The Board of Trustees will appoint a committee to conduct a nationwide search for the next President of Logan. That search will be focused on identifying candidates who will help Logan continue as a leader in the field of chiropractic education and related graduate level programs.
