Jane Jarvi, Ed.D., joined the School of Pharmacy, Husson University, as the Manager of Educational Programming for Experiential Education in the Department of Pharmacy Practice in August 2012. Her educational journey is varied and diverse having attended and/or worked at seven different universities from coast to coast. She earned her B.S. at Washington State University (Recreation), her M.S. from Memphis State University (Therapeutic Recreation, CTRS) and her Ed.D. from Idaho State University (Higher Education Leadership). University job experiences range from physical plant, art galleries, and student affairs, to medical and pharmacy schools. This diversity brings a plethora of experience to her new position.
Since 2009, Jane has been the volunteer coordinator of the White Art Gallery at Husson and became an instructor of “Husson Experience” starting in 2011; Husson Experience has two different avenues (active and passive), in which students can hone life-long learning skills. Her new position allows her to provide the educational programing that will facilitate pharmacy students, preceptors, and faculty success in the experiential education segment of the pharmacy curriculum.
The Jarvi family moved to Maine in 2008. Her husband, Eric, is the Associate Dean for the School of Pharmacy, Husson. Their oldest son is a member of the inaugural pharmacy class at Husson. Their youngest son started his education at University of Maine and is currently serving in U.S. Navy.
