We prepare students to assume leadership roles as physical therapy professionals through autonomous and evidence-based practice, altruism, integrity and ethical conduct, and social and professional responsibility. We are committed to contribution to the body of knowledge in physical therapy through the research efforts of faculty and students. We strive to enrich the community through provision of physical therapy services to those in the region.
