Brandi Keith has been appointed director of operations for the Interprofessional Teaching Center (ITC) at the University of Central Arkansas.
Located in UCA’S new Integrated Health Sciences Building, the ITC is a 10,000-square-foot space that is designed to teach nursing and other health care students to learn and work alongside one another. It features private examination and counseling rooms, a therapy gym and a pediatric therapy room, as well as various classrooms, including one with a teach kitchen.
As the director of operations, Keith will be charged with the administration of clinical services for the College of Health and Behavioral Sciences. This includes services and programs provided by the ITC and the Speech-Language-Hearing Center. Keith will develop the “vision and strategic plan” for the ITC, as well as direct the activities at the facility and coordinate outreach operations.
