Slippery Rock University plans to launch college of health professions

SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. — Slippery Rock University is launching a College of Health Professions, which will put all the school’s health care-related undergraduate and graduate programs together.

The university has been working behind the scenes, under Inaugural Dean John Bonaguro, to prepare for what could be a launch of the new college in January 2022 or by the fall. It got official approval Friday by SRU’s Council of Trustees. It’s SRU’s fifth college.

SRU, located north of Pittsburgh off Interstate 79, has a significant presence in health-related programs. But, said Bonaguro, the programs themselves could be more visible and the opportunities better tapped if they were together. They are in several colleges at the moment.
