Dean's Message

Welcome to the College of Health Sciences and Professions.

We like to think bigger about health, here.

This college is committed to care – for our students, for the people they serve and for the communities we call home.

As dean, I see the full picture of the incredible things that happen in our college on a regular basis. Outreach and community involvement are defining characteristics of our health-centered curricula, and clinical activity and service learning are intrinsic to most majors.

Our curious and compassionate students combine classroom work with hands-on learning experiences alongside renowned faculty and researchers to understand the diverse populations they will serve. They challenge themselves to think about the future of health care to address the needs of underserved populations. They learn to appreciate how health professions collaborate and intersect to solve challenges across the global dimensions of health and health care issues.

Our students become health care professionals who passionately care about those they serve. This uniting of passions and professions – of ideals and ideas – is part of what makes our college so special.

I invite you to explore our programs and get to know us. We can help you find the education and career path that fulfills you and lets you use your unique talents and skills to serve with care.

Dean of the College of Health Sciences and Professions
