While Dr. Jorvig might be new to Concordia, he is no stranger to working in a higher education. In fact, it was Dr. Jorvig’s experience as a campus dean, combined with his vision for Concordia’s School of Pharmacy that made him stand out.

Dr. Jorvig’s background includes a PhD in medicinal chemistry. Medicinal Chemistry is offered within the School of Pharmacy within the Pharmaceutical Sciences Department. Jorvig is very familiar with overseeing academics and accreditation processes. He began teaching as an assistant professor of pharmaceutical sciences at Roseman University in Nevada. Over time, he advanced through the ranks until Jorvig then served as campus dean.
