Sherman College of Chiropractic Prepares for Presidential Search

The Board of Trustees at Sherman College of Chiropractic has begun a search for the college’s next president, says Chairman Peter Kevorkian, D.C. The board is looking for a new leader to take the college to its next level of growth.

Sherman’s fourth president, Jon C. Schwartzbauer, D.C., announced May 24 that he is stepping down; Schwartzbauer will oversee day-to-day operations and serve the college as needed while the Board of Trustees conducts its search. Schwartzbauer has served as the college’s president since 2007, leading the college through reaffirmation of both institutional and programmatic accreditation, improving student learning and patient care, and implementing a comprehensive chiropractic curriculum.

Kevorkian says the board is seeking nominations and applications for a proven and dynamic leader to serve as the organization’s president. “The successful candidate will have a strong track record in inspiring, motivating and leading a senior management team and will take on the significant leadership role of representing Sherman College’s vision in the chiropractic profession,” he shares.

The college president will report to the Board of Trustees and should have a distinguished record of leadership, management and service in his/her field (D.C. preferred) including higher education, business and/or government experience and excellent written and verbal communication skills. Nominations and applications (see details here) should be addressed to the college, to the attention of the Presidential Search Committee, and should be submitted by July 31, 2012.   

Schwartzbauer Steps Down as Sherman College’s Fourth President

Sherman College’s fourth president, Jon C. Schwartzbauer, D.C., has announced today that he is stepping down. Dr. Schwartzbauer has served as the college’s president since 2007 and has been a member of the faculty and administration for 10 years.

“I have seen Sherman College surpass expectations many times, in many ways, and I know the college has the potential to be truly exceptional,” Dr. Schwartzbauer said. “I am honored to have been part of that path.” He says he will oversee day-to-day operations and serve the college as needed while the Board of Trustees embarks on a search for the college’s next president. The Board of Trustees is looking for a new leader to take the college through its next opportunities for growth.

During his tenure as president, Dr. Schwartzbauer has seen Sherman College through reaffirmation of both its institutional and programmatic accreditation. He has improved student learning and led the implementation of a comprehensive chiropractic curriculum, enhancing the college’s ability to graduate primary health care professionals who are highly skilled, compassionate, ethical and successful. In addition, Dr. Schwartzbauer managed the conversion of the college’s on-campus Chiropractic Health Center to a patient-centered model, which has improved both patient care and student learning outcomes.

Dr. Schwartzbauer took on the presidency during a tumultuous time as the college faced probation with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools for its Quality Enhancement Plan and several student and academic policy issues. Through his leadership and the diligent work of the college community, the college was ultimately removed from probation and had its accreditation reaffirmed in 2009. In addition, the college received two commendations during its October 2011 team visit from the Council on Chiropractic Education– one specifically commending the doctor of chiropractic degree program for “the leadership, commitment and dedication of the [Sherman College] community regarding the cultural, mission and curricular changes.”

A 1997 Sherman alumnus, Dr. Schwartzbauer previously served the college as vice president for academic affairs, director of the Leadership and Practice Management Institute and a member of the Chiropractic Health Center faculty. He ran Schwartzbauer Straight Chiropractic Center in Mahtomedi, MN, for five years before he joined the Sherman College faculty in 2002. He also served as a team chiropractor for the St. Paul Saints, a minor league baseball team in his home state of Minnesota. In addition to the doctor of chiropractic degree he earned in 1997, Dr. Schwartzbauer holds a bachelor’s degree from Excelsior College.

Sherman Shows Heart with Free Valentine Visits, Donations to Oklahaven

February 21, 2012

Interns and clinic doctors at Sherman College of Chiropractic recently showed their appreciation for health center patients, offering more than 120 free chiropractic visits during “Sweetheart’s Day” on February 14. The college’s on-campus Chiropractic Health Center also raised money for Oklahaven Children’s Chiropractic Center.

During Sweetheart’s Day, current clinic patients were offered a free visit, and many took advantage of the offer, resulting in a busy day for interns and supervising faculty. “We wanted to celebrate current patients and show them how thankful we are that they trust the Sherman Health Center for their chiropractic care,” said Dean of Clinics Keith Henry, D.C. “Valentine’s Day was a great fit for showing our appreciation.”

The college took further advantage of the February 14 date by participating in an annual “Have a Heart” campaign, accepting donations for Oklahaven Children’s Chiropractic Center. Oklahaven, a nonprofit organization in Oklahoma City, OK, specializes in providing chiropractic care for mentally and physically challenged children. The center has had high success rates with children with such disorders as cerebral palsy, autism, sensory related disorders such as ADD/ADHD), colic, asthma, ear infections,  juvenile arthritis, and paralysis. Oklahaven has been helping children since 1962 and does not receive any government assistance.

The Sherman College Chiropractic Health Center is a teaching clinic for students in their final stage of internship prior to graduation from the doctor of chiropractic program. Interns, under direct supervision of licensed faculty chiropractors, provide quality and affordable chiropractic care to Upstate South Carolina residents through approximately 20,000 visits to the health center each year.

The facility serves as the hands-on learning site for the college’s chiropractic interns while also providing them with the experience essential to developing their clinical competence and creating a successful chiropractic practice after graduation. In addition, interns and faculty participate in spinal checks and health talks at community events throughout the year.
