John G. Rangos School of Health Sciences

The John G. Rangos School of Health Sciences (RSHS) is one of the ten constituent colleges that comprise Duquesne University.

History

On 29 January 1990, Dr. John E. Murray, Jr., then President of Duquesne University, announced the creation of a School of Health Sciences in order to "graduate professionals who will provide assistance to people in maintaining their physical well-being. It will make them more self-sufficient physically and provide great hope for their futures. It meets an overwhelming societal need, and it enlarges opportunities for students at Duquesne. In serving the citizens of Western Pennsylvania, and our students, this initiative is precisely in accordance with the purposes of Duquesne University." On 18 March 1991, Mr. John G. Rangos, Sr. made a major gift to Duquesne University in support of the school, and so it was announced that the school would be named after him.cite book | title =Undergraduate Catalog 2007-2008 | publisher =Duquesne University | location =Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania | pages =227]
