The primary mission of the School of Health and Human Services is to
provide a professionally oriented education at the baccalaureate level and
to provide graduate programs in specialized disciplines related to health
and human services. As a major academic unit in a comprehensive, regional
university, the school is unique and important in educating health and human
services professionals for the San Joaquin Valley. The school cooperates
with other units of the university to provide a comprehensive curriculum
required to effectively prepare qualified professionals.
The school provides an especially important leadership role in community services through participation of its faculty in organizations, boards, and a variety of agencies and by conducting workshops, symposia, in-service education and applied research. The school is also committed to the continuing education and the professional development of health and human services providers.
The academic disciplines of communicative sciences and disorders, gerontology, health science, kinesiology, nursing, physical therapy, recreation administration and leisure studies, and social work education within the school seek to foster interdisciplinary-holistic education for future health and human services providers.
