Indiana University South Bend is mourning the death of Mary Jo Regan-Kubinski, the dean of the College of Health Sciences. She died on Sunday after a brief illness. She was 60 years old. In an announcement to the campus, IU South Bend Chancellor Una Mae Reck described Dean Regan-Kubinski as an energetic, passionate and dedicated advocate for the College of Health Sciences, its students, faculty and staff. "We will miss her leadership and friendship. Our thoughts and prayers are with her husband John and her family," she said.
Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Alfred Guillaume joined Reck in the announcement. He said Dean Regan-Kubinski was a champion for providing highly skilled and caring health care professionals to the hospitals, clinics and doctor's offices across Michiana. "She will be dearly missed," he added.

A memorial service will be scheduled in the near future. Contributions in honor of her life can be made to the Sisters of the Holy Cross, Notre Dame, Ind.

Regan-Kubinski joined IU South Bend in 2003 as the Dean of the Division of Nursing and Health Professions. The division was later re-named the College of Health Sciences. Prior to her service at IU South Bend she was the chair of the Department of Nursing at Saint Mary's College.

She was also an assistant professor at the University of Pittsburgh; assistant professor at Villanova University; a clinical instructor at Wayne State University, Detroit; an associate instructor at Kellogg Community College, Battle Creek, Mich.; and assistant professor at Saint Mary's.

She earned a bachelor's degree in nursing and a master's degree in child psychiatric nursing from Wayne State University. She received a doctorate degree in clinical nursing research from the University of Michigan.
