TCU Harris College of Nursing & Health Sciences will have a new dean.

The university, on Thursday, announced the appointment of Christopher Watts, professor and director of TCU’s Davies School of Communication Sciences & Disorders, to his new position.

Watts currently also serves as the director of the graduate program in Speech-Language Pathology. He was the assistant dean for Strategic Initiatives in Harris College of Nursing & Health Sciences from 2015 to 2018.

Watts will return to Harris College to begin his tenure as dean starting June 1.

“Christopher Watts’ leadership as assistant dean for Strategic Initiatives for Harris College has perfectly positioned him to advance global health education and innovation while building on the excellent reputation of the college,” said Teresa Abi-Nader Dahlberg, provost and vice chancellor for Academic Affairs at Texas Christian University.

At his current role at Davies School, Watts has guided the school through a major renovation and a 50% revenue increment from its clinical enterprise, according to the university.

Under Watts’ leadership, the school’s undergraduate enrollments grew by 60% and graduate enrollments grew by 70%.

Susan Mace Weeks, the previous dean, was appointed vice provost at Texas Christian University last year.
