🕐 1 min read

The University of Texas at Arlington named Anne Bavier, a nationally recognized health care leader who has had posts at top ranked universities and at the National Institutes of Health, as the new dean of the College of Nursing. Bavier will join the university on Aug. 1.

Bavier previously served as dean of the University of Connecticut School of Nursing and also as dean of nursing at Saint Xavier University in Chicago. She is president-elect of the National League for Nursing, which includes more than 39,000 members. “Dr. Bavier will lead us into a new era of national recognition and influence as we work together to improve health and the human condition across Texas and around the world,” said UT Arlington President Vistasp Karbhari.

Bavier will lead one of the nation’s largest and most successful nursing programs with a current enrollment of nearly 12,000 undergraduate and graduate students on campus and in online programs. More than 90 percent of UTA nursing graduates pass their initial state licensure exam on their first attempt. The college boasts a 94-percent graduation rate. Bavier will oversee the merger of the Department of Kinesiology into the College of Nursing during the 2014-2015 academic year. The combined college will include nearly 350 faculty members.
