All of our programs are recognized for their teaching excellence and service to the community.

Almost all of our programs are nationally accredited.

The programs in the School of Health and Human Services are collaborative and interdisciplinary and offer a wide and diverse range of opportunities and community partnerships for our students.

Our school has a dedicated group of faculty and staff who are committed to helping students develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to be successful and productive in health care and human services careers. A hallmark of our programs is the integrated experiential learning opportunities for our students. Each semester, we have over 400 students placed in community sites working with our community partners and people across the life span to support optimal health and well-being.
