21st century. Faculty, staff and administrators in the College of Health and Human
Services are dedicated to serving students, developing learning partnerships with
regional health and human service providers, and delivering the cutting edge learning

Our teaching facilities are continuously updated to reflect the technology in use at corporations, agencies, and institutions where our graduates are employed. The college supports student services that can provide quick and accessible academic advising.
Our academic programs provide hands-on experience and skills, with the support of
high tech training opportunities such as those available in the Speech and Language
Clinic, the Gait, Balance and Mobility Center, Nursing Skills Laboratory and Sports
Psychology Laboratory. In addition, faculty and students actively engage in interdisciplinary
research in numerous institutes within the college related to health policy, children
