Sherman College Names VPs, Dean

•  Clusserath Named Vice President of Chiropractic Health Services
•  Schwartzbauer Named Vice President of Academic Affairs
•  Irwin Named Vice President for Enrollment Services
•  Donofrio Named Dean of Clinical Sciences

Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic in Spartanburg, SC, recently made several administrative announcements. Michael Clusserath, B.S., D.C., has been named to the top-line administrator position of vice president of chiropractic health services; Jon Schwartzbauer, B.S., D.C., has been named vice president for Academic Affairs; Bob Irwin, A.S., D.C., has been named vice president for enrollment services; and Joseph J. Donofrio, D.C., has been named dean of clinical sciences.

Clusserath Named Vice President of Chiropractic Health Services
Mike Clusserath, B.S., D.C., has been named vice president for chiropractic health services. This title change (from dean to vice president) better reflects the importance of that position’s responsibility and also increases the influence that position has in the overall administration of the college.

Because the college’s on-campus Chiropractic Health Center is an integral part of Sherman, the person overseeing all of its operations and services should have administrative capabilities in line with those responsibilities, says Sherman College Interim President Thomas A. Gelardi, D.C.

Clusserath joined Sherman in early 2000 as an assistant professor and health center faculty member. He is a 1987 graduate of Palmer Chiropractic College West and a 1982 graduate of Washington State University, where he majored in zoology. Before joining the faculty at Sherman, he maintained a private practice for 11 years in Covington, WA.

Schwartzbauer Named Vice President of Academic Affairs
Leadership and Practice Management Institute (LPMI) Director Jon Schwartzbauer, B.S., D.C., has been named vice president for academic affairs. Schwartzbauer will continue to serve as LPMI director and will teach several courses.

Schwartzbauer is a 1997 graduate of Sherman College and received a B.S. from Excelsior College in 2003. Before joining the Sherman College faculty in 2002, he practiced at Schwartzbauer Straight Chiropractic Center in Mahtomedi, MN, for five years.

Irwin Named Vice President for Enrollment Services
Bob Irwin, A.S., D.C., has been named vice president for enrollment services. Irwin previously served Sherman as dean of clinical sciences, assistant professor of clinical sciences and a member of the health center faculty.

Irwin received an associate’s degree from Southwestern Michigan in 1976 and a D.C. degree from Life Chiropractic College in 1979. Before joining Sherman in a full-time administrative role, he maintained a private practice in Hendersonville, NC.

Susan Newlin, former vice president for enrollment services, will be taking on the role of senior development officer in the Office of Institutional Advancement. Newlin, who has worked at Sherman College since 1974, brings an intimate knowledge of the college, its alumni and supporters to this new role that dovetails with the college’s alumni relations and fund raising.

Donofrio Named Dean of Clinical Sciences
Sherman’s Technique Department Chair Joe Donofrio, D.C., has been named dean of clinical sciences. Donofrio joined the college in 1997 and has served as an assistant professor of clinical sciences, a member of the health center faculty and chair of Technique Department. He received his D.C. from Sherman College in 1994 and teaches several courses.

As dean of clinical sciences, Donofrio will serve on various college committees, assist in ongoing self-study and outcomes assessment, and assist in coordinating the academic program and faculty to continually improve the quality of instruction. He will continue to serve as chair of the Technique Department and will remain in the classroom as well.
