Our students succeed because of outstanding teachers and mentors. This year for Giving Day, we ask you to give your support to the Earl L. Smith Endowed Professorship. Your gift will help the college recruit and retain top faculty by providing recognition and support for excellence in teaching, research, service and patient care.
Dr. Earl L. Smith has been a visionary leader at the UHCO since 1966 and his work in myopia is changing how vision care practitioners help children see the world. During his tenure as the UHCO Dean, he transformed the college into a leading global center for vision research and advanced clinical practice.
