Brunner Leaves ANA to Found Pharmacy School at Regis University
Lane Brunner, deputy executive director of museum, library and research services at the American Numismatic Association, will leave June 15 to become the founding dean of the Regis University School of Pharmacy.
An accomplished numismatist who came to the ANA in 2004 from The University of Texas at Austin’s College of Pharmacy faculty, Brunner was instrumental in expanding the Association’s educational offerings and in its plans to add museums in San Francisco and Washington, D.C.
“Lane was very easy to work with. He was willing to take on any project or initiative,” ANA Executive Director Chris Cipoletti said. “He is a very knowledgeable numismatist with an ability to be forward-thinking to make sure that the ANA has a future for generations to come.”
Brunner will start June 18 at Regis, working to found a School of Pharmacy that is set open in fall 2008.
“It was an incredible opportunity I just had to pursue. Regis University has an excellent reputation for education and training, especially in the healthcare professions,” Brunner said. “I will miss working with the ANA’s fantastic staff – an amazing group of people.”
Deputy Executive Director for Education and Publications Sharon Thomas will take over operational responsibility for the ANA’s museum and library. Cipoletti will oversee the facilities management of the San Francisco and Washington, D.C., museums.
During this time, the ANA will consider allocating resources to bringing in additional staff to support the museum and library’s educational mission. A final decision will be made within the next two months.
