Stetson University has signed a milestone agreement with Adventist University of Health Sciences (ADU).

The agreement, which was signed on Nov. 3, will create new student opportunities.

"Stetson and ADU are far more complimentary than competitive," ADU President Dr. David Greenlaw said. "ADU has access to world-class clinical facilities at Florida Hospital with several graduate degrees like Physician Assistant and Physical Therapy where we can build bridges for our students. There are also some opportunities for joint research in the health sciences."

Included in the agreement are a number of possible career paths that students of both Stetson and ADU will be able to explore on their way to earning a degree, which they can do on either campus. Also available to students are dual degrees, which will provide more career options for graduates.

"Some of our MBA students may like to add the Masters in Healthcare Administration from ADU, and those students may like to pursue graduate law degrees with Stetson,” Stetson President Dr. Wendy Libby said. “Students in our life sciences programs can prepare for entrance to ADU graduate degrees in physical therapy or occupational therapy. This agreement really opens up new career options for our students."
