Beth Moy, in her duties working at the Southeastern Pennsylvania Consortium for Higher Education (SEPCHE), never forgot her visit to Salus University for the first time.
“You can feel the purpose, focus, and energy that faculty and students bring to the work. It’s palpable and energizing,” she said.
Salus is a member of SEPCHE, a consortium established in 1993 representing more than 20,000 students in small universities located across all five counties of metropolitan Philadelphia.
Now, in her new role, she is the new chief of staff at Salus University, and excited to be a part of the Salus “community of excellence.”
“These are top-notch faculty doing really innovative work,” she said, noting as one example the Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) partnership with The Inspiration Center in Belize. “I’m impressed with the work that is going on here.
Moy earned a bachelor’s degree in English in 1992 from the University of Texas, Austin, and a Master of Social Work degree in Administration and Planning from Temple University in 1997.
Moy was attracted to the position at Salus for several reasons, including the opportunity to work with University president Michael H. Mittelman, OD ‘80, MPH, MBA, FAAO, FACHE, whom she first met through SEPCHE.
“Dr. Mittelman is an amazing ambassador for Salus,” she said. “He’s a compelling and visionary leader and he’s not afraid to experiment. Seeing the pace he keeps and his decision-making process, I’m attracted to the experience he brings beyond higher ed. I think I will learn a lot with him.”
“Working on the operation side to support the work of faculty and students will give me a different view on the University,” she said. “I’m excited for the chance to work with a team of really experienced leaders on the operation side. I look forward to learning with them, and I hope to make a meaningful contribution to Salus.”
Moy said the early stages of her new position will include building relationships with faculty and staff with an eye on connecting her network to Salus for growth opportunities.
“Students are getting an amazing education that integrates interdisciplinary expertise with cultural competence, creativity, and flexibility — all the things we want emerging graduates to have as leading healthcare practitioners,” she said. “I am moved by the mission at Salus, I see how well Salus does what it does, and I’m excited to be able to contribute to it.”
Dr. Mittelman is happy to have a new Chief of Staff on board. “We are absolutely thrilled that Beth will be joining our team at Salus,” he said. “Her wealth of experience working in higher education as well as her unparalleled leadership and communication skills will help bring Salus to our next level of excellence.”
