SAN JOSE, Calif.– Charlie Bullock, dean of the College of Applied Sciences and Arts, has been elected chair of The Health Trust Board of Trustees.
Bullock, a visionary leader in higher education, joined The Health Trust board in 2012. He is regarded nationally as an expert on the inclusion of people with disabilities, especially in sport and recreation.
He came to SJSU in January 2009 from the University of Nevada, Reno, where he was dean of the College of Health and Human Sciences. Prior to his time in Reno, Bullock had been on faculty for 17 years at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and a doctoral degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
“I am looking forward to working with Charlie at this exciting time at The Health Trust,” said Frederick J. Ferrer, CEO. “He brings energy, initiative and creativity to the position of board chair, as well as a deep connection to the higher education community.”
