Salus University has been doing the Bird Box Challenge safely since the 1980s. The University's founding college, the Pennsylvania College of Optometry (PCO), was the first institution in the country to offer a graduate degree and certificate program in Vision Rehabilitation.
Salus University maintains a legacy that began 100 years ago in Philadelphia when our founding College, the Pennsylvania College of Optometry (PCO), was initially established by Dr. Albert Fitch.
Earlier this year, the University unveiled the campus’ largest classroom in honor of Lorraine Lombardi, PhD for her dedicated service to both the Pennsylvania College of Optometry (PCO) and Salus.
Dr. Scharre recently retired as the University’s provost and vice president of Academic Affairs, and moved to Northern Virginia to spend more quality time with her growing family. Undoubtedly, she will now have ample time to focus on the non-academic aspects of her life, but says she’ll miss the pace and the decision making of being provost, as well as her Salus colleagues.
Lawrence Green was recently named director of Institutional Advancement.
