Wendy Duncan, PhD (Pharmaceutics)

Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost
559-325-3600

Biography

Wendy Duncan, PhD, is a distinguished expert in new program evaluation and development and curriculum design and assessment. With extensive experience in strategic planning and change management, she is a visionary with a passion for developing innovative learning and scholarly opportunities for students. Prior to joining CHSU, Dr. Duncan served as Dean in the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences and Professor at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa and as Vice President of Academic Affairs, Dean of Pharmacy, and Professor at St. Louis College of Pharmacy. Prior to her appointment as Dean, she served as a faculty member at the University of Toronto and as Associate Dean for Education and Director of the Office of Teaching, Learning and Assessment at Auburn University’s Harrison School of Pharmacy. Duncan received her Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy and PhD in Pharmaceutics from the University of Toronto.

At both St. Louis College of Pharmacy and Auburn University Harrison School of Pharmacy, Duncan instituted curricular transformation with the extensive use of team-based and problem-based learning and a greater focus on practice management, advocacy and community service. Duncan has demonstrated her comprehensive understanding of accreditation procedures through the successful completion of self-studies resulting in accreditation and reaccreditation at four institutions at both the programmatic and regional level and by serving as a site evaluator for the American Council for Pharmaceutical Education since 2007. Duncan also conveys a strong focus on intra- and inter-professional coalitions and research and she formally instituted the Des Moines Area Interprofessional Collaborative among five colleges and universities. She was instrumental in amassing the Missouri Pharmacy Coalition, a consortium of colleges, state pharmacy organizations and board members creating a legislation- and policy-focused alliance. She was responsible for developing inter-professional alliances with Saint Louis University, Washington University School of Medicine, and Goldfarb School of Nursing providing new educational, practice, and research opportunities for students and faculty.

Collaborating with the academic affairs office and the provost’s council, Wendy ensures the academic integrity of the university and supports innovations in programs and methods of delivery which respond to the changing demands of the future workforce in the health sciences.
