Dr. Denise Doyle, Chancellor of UIW, was recently recognized by the Association of Schools and Colleges of Optometry (ASCO) for her extraordinary efforts in the creation and advancement of UIW’s new optometric education program – the UIW Rosenberg School of Optometry (UIWRSO).
Dr. Doyle has brought a level of leadership and professional expertise to the establishment of UIWRSO that has resulted in its profile as a well-defined, excellence-oriented health professions institution guided by a mission of preparing future leaders in optometry through excellence in education, patient care and vision research in an environment committed to personal growth in a context of faith, human dignity and social justice.
In a statement by the Board of Directors of ASCO it formally lauds the work of Dr. Doyle in the establishment of the UIW Rosenberg School of Optometry, “which has brought great credit to the School, the University and the optometric profession.”
Founded in 1941, ASCO is a non-profit education association representing the interests of optometric education. ASCO’s membership encompasses the schools and colleges of optometry in the United States and Puerto Rico.
