Please join us in welcoming our Inaugural dean:  Dr. Stephanie Brooks

Our vision: 

The College of Health will be a leader in diverse, inclusive education, interprofessional practice, and research. Utilizing a holistic approach, we will promote individual, family, community, regional, and global health and wellness.

Our mission:

Inspire innovation and inclusivity
Promote health equity and wellness
Educate with excellence

Note: "IPE" is an acronym used to describe InterProfessional Education - which is a cornerstone of our educational philosophy to prepare health scientists and health workers to work collaboratively across disciplines.  For example, in a hospital setting a variety of practitioners and professionals need to work together to improve and promote health considering the whole person and all aspects of how a diagnosis may impact someone's health and life.

Our core values:


COVID-19 and vaccinations

Many of our partner health care facilities require students and faculty to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and other standard vaccinations in order to have clinical experiences at their facility.  In some programs, it may be difficult to complete placements required for your program of study if you do not get the vaccine.
