Kettering College Announces Dean for Institutional Effectiveness
October 2, 2019–Dr. Scott Bennie has joined Kettering College this fall as a member of the college executive team, as the Dean of Institutional Effectiveness, and as a faculty member in the developing Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program. In his primary role as dean of institutional effectiveness, Dr. Bennie will lead out in college-level assessment, quality, and accreditation work. His prior experience includes program development and institution-level accreditation. While Dr. Bennie’s role as a member of the DPT faculty will be a minor portion of his work at the college, he will bring valuable wisdom and leadership experience to our already strong DPT faculty team.
Bennie earned his bachelor’s in Life Sciences, Master of Physical Therapy, and Doctor of Science degrees from the School of Allied Health Professions at Loma Linda University. He went on to receive his Master of Business Administration, with an emphasis in financial management, from La Sierra University.
In his most recent role, Bennie served as the vice chair and associate professor of the Department of Physical Therapy (DPT) at AdventHealth University in Orlando, Florida. He also served as the founding chair and program director of AdventHealth’s DPT program.
Kettering College president Nate Brandstater expressed excitement about Dr. Bennie coming to Kettering College. “Scott brings diversity and depth in his academic, clinical, and administrative expertise. With his commitment to the faith-based mission of Kettering College and his strong leadership, we are thrilled that he is joining us.”
