The Beaver College of Health Sciences would like to congratulate Dr. Scott Collier on his recent appointment to the position of Faculty Director of Prestigious Scholarship Programs at Appalachian State University. Dr. Collier earned his Doctoral Degree in Cardiovascular Exercise Physiology in 2006 from Syracuse University. He has been a faculty member at Appalachian since 2009 where student research has been a focus throughout his career.
According to the office of the Provost, “The Faculty Director for Prestigious Scholarship Programs is responsible for recruiting and preparing high-achieving students to compete successfully for prestigious national and international scholarships. The Faculty Director works in collaboration with the Assistant Director of Scholarship Programs and the Office of University Scholarships to identify stakeholders across campus to publicize opportunities, identify and nurture a diverse set of high-potential students, advise those students as they develop their portfolios, as well as support faculty in their roles as mentors and recommenders.”
Dr. Collier has always had a passion for helping students achieve their highest potential. “I really believe I don’t just deliver content, but teach students where to get the information they need to continue to learn when they leave our institution. Good teachers prepare students for the next level, not just where they are now.”
We wish Dr. Collier all the best as he continues to prepare our students for success.
