Chair of Task Force that Recommended the Formation of CHHS Receives Lifetime Achievement Award

Dr. Robert Tyndall, chair of the 2008 Task Force on the Future of Health-Related Programs at UNCW, has been awarded The StarNews Media Lifetime Achievement Award. The Task Force’s report led to the formation of the College of Health and Human Services.

Tyndall, a recently retired professor who served a 28-year tenure at UNCW, held numerous leadership roles at the university, including vice chancellor and associate provost for information technology resources and innovation, vice chancellor for public service and continuing education and dean of the Watson College of Education.

The StarNews Lifetime Achievement Award is awarded to “outstanding individuals who have given substantially of themselves for the improvement of the communities of Wilmington and Southeastern North Carolina, particularly in the areas of economic development, education, charity, health, preservation, arts and the environment.”

“Dr. Tyndall is one of the most accomplished strategic thinkers I have had he good pleasure to know and work with,” CHHS Dean Charles Hardy said. “His visionary leadership provided the context for the Task Force to recommend the formation of the CHHS. All of us in the CHHS and UNCW owe a lot to Dr. Tyndall. Thanks, Professor!”
