Belong. Stand Out. Go Far.

“The faculty and staff of the College of Health and Human Services are committed not only to providing quality classroom and laboratory experiences where students gain disciplinary knowledge, but are also committed to the application of this knowledge in professional settings. All of our students engage with the professional community through clinical, internship or other applied external experiences. We believe engaging in their profession encourages students to understand their role in the larger community and to appreciate the value of serving others.”

– James Ciesla, Ph.D., Dean
