The Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine welcomes Daniel Teraguchi, EdD, as its new associate dean for student affairs.

Dr. Teraguchi comes to WSU from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, where he served as the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs and the Director of the Office for Student Diversity for nearly eight years. The southeast Idaho native received his doctorate from Idaho State University in Educational Leadership. 

As the associate dean for student affairs at ESFCOM he will be developing creative and innovative programs to support students throughout their medical education. One such innovative program will be learning communities, which will foster a culture of professionalism, diversity and inclusion.
