Below are news items of interest from McMurry University faculty and students.

APPA, the association dedicated to leadership in educational facilities, is proud to announce that Brad Poorman at McMurry University has received the Certified Educational Facilities Professional (CEFP) credential. The CEFP is a way to validate the unique knowledge and competency required of an accomplished professional in the educational facilities field.

“Credentialing is important, not just to show that you are qualified, but also to show that you have enough dedication in your role to make the effort to earn a professional certification. Quite often that says more about an individual than the certification itself. APPA's CEFP is the only certification that demonstrates the recipient’s qualifications for educational facilities management, and also demonstrates their dedication to the educational facilities profession,” said John Morris P.E., CFM, CEM, CPE, LEED AP, GBE, CEFP, and Chair of APPA’s Board for Educational Facilities Professionals Certification. “The APPA CEFP is quickly becoming the industry standard, and I encourage everyone to pursue their CEFP certification. By obtaining and maintaining this credential, recipients will further assure forward-thinking relevancy and mastery of the best management practices related to educational facilities.”

McMurry Biomedical Science student Victoria Chavez '17 has been accepted into a summer internship at the University of Washington through the Summer Health Professions Education Program (SHPEP).

SHPEP is a national program funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation with direction and technical assistance provided by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and the American Dental Education Association (ADEA).
