Going home: After almost 9 years, LaBlance leaves OUWB for Chicago

The prospects of building something new drew Sandra LaBlance, Ph.D., to OUWB more than eight years ago — but now, she says, it’s time to start a new role in a familiar place she calls home.

Effective Aug. 27, LaBlance will leave her position as OUWB’s Associate Dean for Student Affairs.

She will serve as Senior Associate Dean for Student Affairs at Rosalind Franklin University Chicago Medical School.

LaBlance returns to Chicago, a place she calls “home” and previously held assistant dean and director positions at Loyola University Chicago and Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, respectively.

“It’s about going home,” she says. “In some ways, the past eight-and-a-half years has been akin to going away for residency, I’m doing my fellowship, and now I’m ready to go back home.”
