Dr. Craig Phelps

Craig Phelps, D.O., '84, named next president of ATSU

After an extensive search that included many national leaders in healthcare education, the A.T. Still University of Health Sciences (ATSU) Board of Trustees is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Craig Phelps as the next President of ATSU. Clyde Evans, Ph.D., board chair, announced that Craig Phelps, D.O., FAOASM, will become ATSU president effective July 1; he will replace President Jack Magruder, who several months ago had announced his intention to retire.

Dr. Phelps, a 1984 graduate of ATSU’s Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine (KCOM), became provost of the University’s Arizona campus in 1998, where he led the team that developed that campus and its three academic units: the Arizona School of Health Sciences, the Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health, and the School of Osteopathic Medicine in Arizona (joining KCOM and the School of Health Management on the Kirksville, Mo., campus). In 2010 Dr. Phelps became the University’s first executive vice president for strategic initiatives; he has been working with Dr. Magruder and key ATSU leaders to develop the Missouri School of Dentistry & Oral Health, as well as other programs.

“Dr. Phelps brings to the position of president a rich history of major contributions to the University, a vast knowledge of ATSU and its people, and a commitment to carry out the mission and vision of the University,” said Board Chair Evans. “We are confident that Dr. Phelps is the right choice for the highest leadership position at ATSU, and we look forward to working with him to continue the tradition of Dr. Andrew Taylor Still and to bring our university to even greater prominence.”

The bowls were created by local artist Farraday Newsome and will be sold during ATSU’s Wellness Week in February to help raise money for a local food bank and raise awareness of hunger issues.
