Graduates of academic programs in the College of Health and Human Services have benefited from the use of leading edge equipment that promotes science-based approaches in Exercise Science, Physical Therapy, Athletic Training, Nursing, Environmental Health, Deaf Education and Speech/Language Pathology.

Engaging with Faculty and Professionals in STEM Fields
Faculty in the college and directors and staff in our Centers and Institutes engage with faculty across the university and professionals in STEM fields to survey environmental and community settings to better understand the complex array of challenges that affect quality of life in the San Joaquin Valley. Our united challenge is to develop approaches to service and policy change that makes a difference.
The College of Health and Human Services supports the growth and future development of STEM partnership across the campus and region.
