The Joe McCulloch Endowment For Educational Excellence

When I was selected to succeed my friend and colleague Joe McCulloch as Dean of the LSU School of Allied Health Professions in Shreveport, I knew I had big shoes to fill. Not only is Joe an exceptional clinician, educator, and mentor, but he’d done more to unite the seven allied health programs under one roof than anyone before him. That’s why with Joe’s help I made it one of my first initiatives as Dean to support the Joe McCulloch Endowment for Educational Excellence.

Upon his retirement last year, a group of Joe’s colleagues, friends and family, and former students came together to establish the aforementioned McCulloch Endowment. With Joe’s blessing, we decided that his endowment will support educational initiatives that impact all of our students. It seemed like the perfect way to honor a man who did so much to bring our School of Allied Health Professions closer together. And thanks to the generosity of those initial donors, we are so close to raising enough money to complete the endowment and cement Joe’s enduring legacy, but we need your help to cross the finish line.

This year, please consider a tax deductible gift to the Joe McCulloch Endowment for Educational Excellence. Whether this is your first gift to support the LSU School of Allied Health Professions or just your latest, please know that we’ll be excellent stewards of your donation. Every dollar raised will be put towards the McCulloch endowment, and we’ll keep you apprised of our progress.
