how to evaluate nursing faculty

Julie Johnson Zerwic portrait She also created a federally funded collaboration between UIC and City Colleges of Chicago to provide minority community college students with research opportunities on the university campus. She has served on the board of directors of the Erie Family Health Center in Chicago for a decade. Zerwic served as department head of the UIC Department of Biobehavioral Science from 2005 to 2009. She has been a member of UIC’s faculty since 1993 and was named a fellow of the American Academy of Nursing in 2008. Zerwic’s research focus is on factors that contribute to patients delaying treatment for acute coronary syndrome and stroke. “With her experience, her inclusive leadership style, her commitment to collaboration and innovation—Julie brings invaluable strengths to the College of Nursing,” says Sue Curry, UI interim executive vice president and provost, who announced the appointment. “She has a strong vision for the college’s continued advancement in research, clinical practice, and nursing education at all levels, and I know she is going to work effectively with faculty, staff, and students within and beyond the college to realize that vision.” Zerwic was one of four finalists who interviewed on the UI campus in April and May. The search for a new dean was led by a search committee co-chaired by Donald Letendre, dean of the College of Pharmacy, and Ann Marie McCarthy, associate dean for research in the College of Nursing. Zerwic, who is originally from Green Bay, Wisconsin, earned a Bachelor of Science in nursing from the University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire, a Master of Science from the University of Wisconsin–Madison, and a PhD from the University of Minnesota. She completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Rochester before joining the faculty at UIC.
