Franklin Commitment to Excellence Fund

November 12, 2011 —

Inauguration ceremony (46)

Angela L. Walker Franklin, Ph.D., who became Des Moines University’s 15th president on March 1, 2011, has worked in higher education for more than 20 years.

Promoting her Inauguration on September 24, 2011, she shared her vision, for DMU becoming a destination institution for individuals committed to learning in an environment that promotes excellence, from the delivery of the curriculum and hands-on learning experiences to faculty development and a curriculum that addresses culturally competent care. The Franklin Fund for Excellence was created to support these efforts and help the University achieve educational excellence in all that we do, toward the goal of preparing highly competent and compassionate health care providers and leaders.
