Howard University Dental School Dean Receives Presidential Citation From Nation’s Leading Dental Education Association

Washington (Jan. 30, 2009) – Just weeks after being named to the prestigious national dental accrediting commission, Leo E. Rouse, D.D.S., dean of the Howard University College of Dentistry, has been honored again, this time as the recipient of a 2009 American Dental Education Association (ADEA) Presidential Citation.

This award recognizes those individuals and institutions that have significantly contributed to the mission of ADEA, which is to lead individuals and institutions of the dental education community to address issues influencing education, research and the delivery of oral health care.

“On behalf of Howard University and the College of Dentistry, I am humbled by this recognition, which is a tribute to our outstanding student body, faculty, staff and administrators,” Dean Rouse said. “I am blessed to be a servant leader at Howard, my alma mater.”

ADEA includes members of all U.S. and Canadian dental schools, many allied and postdoctoral dental education programs, corporations, faculty, and students.

The citation will be awarded in March during ADEA’s 86th Annual Session in Phoenix.

In December, Dean Rouse was selected by ADEA to serve on the Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) , the accrediting body for all dental education programs in the United States.

He will serve as one of ADEA’s four commissioners on the body, which is an arm of the American Dental Association (ADA).

As one of the 30 CODA commissioners, Dean Rouse will help formulate and approve accreditation standards, establish policies and procedures for conducting the accreditation program, determine and publicize program accreditation status and appoint consultants and site visitors to assist in accreditation activities.
