Logan College of Chiropractic/University Programs today announced the selection of Dr. Clay McDonald as the college’s next President. McDonald, a Logan alumnus, brings extensive experience in chiropractic education, university administration and clinical practice. He presently serves as the Provost for Texas Chiropractic College, where he leads the institution’s academic, business and administrative operations. 

“We are delighted Dr. McDonald has accepted our invitation to join Logan College as President,” said Steven Roberts, Chair of the Logan Board of Trustees. “Our board, with input from students, faculty, administrators and alumni, conducted a thorough search and reviewed many outstanding candidates for the position. Dr. McDonald is uniquely suited to continue Logan’s outstanding leadership position in the field of chiropractic education.”

Prior to his current role, Dr. McDonald served as Dean of Academic Affairs and Executive Vice President at New York Chiropractic College and in multiple leadership roles at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Iowa. Dr. McDonald also brings Logan nearly a decade of clinical experience, having founded and managed a Montana-based private practice and rehabilitation clinic for eight years. Dr. McDonald holds a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Logan College of Chiropractic, a master’s degree in business administration from St. Ambrose University and a law degree from Valparaiso University. 

“I am humbled by the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of Logan's past leaders,” said Dr. McDonald. “As an educator and Logan alumnus, I look forward to returning to the University as it prepares new generations of chiropractors to serve the communities and build on Logan’s outstanding legacy." 

McDonald will replace Dr. George Goodman, who is retiring after serving as Logan’s President for more than 20 years. During his tenure, Dr. Goodman played a significant role in increasing university enrollment and program offerings, as well as establishing an endowment of more than $25 million.

“We are deeply thankful for Dr. Goodman’s exceptional service and contributions to the University,” said Roberts. “He successfully led Logan for two decades as it has grown into the leading chiropractic institution in the United States.”

Dr. Carl W. Saubert, Vice President of Academic Affairs, will serve as interim President until McDonald formally joins the university on March 1, 2013.
