Meet the Dean

Dean of SHS Antwinett Lee

My journey as the interim dean of the School of Health Sciences began July 1, 2020. I am excited to be on this journey and to serve the School of Health Sciences and Seattle Pacific University. During these times, God is calling us to deliver our peak performance, and my prayer is that every day we are striving for excellence. Our creator is in a front-row seat watching our performance — actions matter.

These words from philanthropist Camille Cosby summarize my thoughts: “We can’t all be great, but we can attach ourselves to great causes.”

Here in the School of Heath Sciences, we have a multitude of opportunities and great causes in our Health and Human Performance and Nursing programs. Grounded in our Christian faith and values, we offer students a pathway to careers that are purpose driven.

“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8 (NIV)

Why I Teach at SPU

Antwinett O. Lee, Interim Dean, School of Health Sciences

I am passionate about teaching and feel like it is a calling for me. As a teacher, my aspiration is to inspire students to get excited about learning and to be curious about inquiry in all things. I believe in transformative lifelong learning that improves not only the learner’s life but benefits others through the learner’s stewardship. Facilitating learning and placing the learner at the center are how I build my lesson plans.
