Board appoints Small as dean


Executive Vice President for Health Sciences Norman J. Beauchamp Jr., today announced Leigh Small will become the next dean of the Michigan State University College of Nursing. Small’s appointment was approved Friday by the MSU Board of Trustees. 

Small has served as interim dean since November 2021, after coming to MSU in 2020 to serve as a professor and associate dean of academic affairs.

“I am so grateful that Dr. Small will lead the college in its mission to transform the health of individuals and communities,” said Beauchamp. “I am truly thankful to the search committee and everyone who took part in the process by attending focus groups, listening sessions and interviews, and by giving their time and feedback. I am also grateful to the search committee co-chairs for their commitment to the inclusion of the college community in this process.”
