Key among the actions, the Board extended President Ali Houshmand's contract for five years, formally changed the name of the School of Osteopathic Medicine that will become part of Rowan in July, designated funding for the construction of three new academic buildings and expansion of a fourth, and amended the University's master plan.

Blank, an esteemed molecular pathologist and cancer researcher with more than 30 years of experience in research program development, technology commercialization and regional economic development, comes to Rowan from Temple University in Philadelphia, where he served as senior vice provost for research and graduate education.
