Mark E. CorreiaWelcome to the College of Health and Human Services! As dean, I am proud to introduce you to our programs, faculty, staff, and students.

The College of Health and Human Services has nine departments and eight centers and institutes, with over 5,000 undergraduate and graduate students and more than 150 faculty and staff. Our professional and applied degree programs contribute to the broader mission of the university and provide students with enriching careers in high-demand areas. When taken as a collective, we broadly focus on the sustainable development, promotion, and fostering of equity, cordiality, access, justice, safety, and, ultimately, happier and healthier individuals and communities.

Our college has a rich history of meeting the evolving needs of our workforce and community, and taking the lead in educating, training, and improving health and social literacy. Through the academically grounded, applied, professional, and collaborative nature of our work, we have been active in transforming the public dialogue and creating a culture of involvement and well-being.

We strive to create professionals who practice in a compassionate, sustainable way, using progressive technology and collaborative techniques.

Our students are actively engaged and adaptive, with the ability to adjust to different situations, new technologies, changing economic conditions, and shifts in social and health environments. With an evolving curriculum that includes integrated courses across the college and university, we build critical thinkers who are collaborators, working together across multiple disciplines, as they will in their future professional lives. Students in our college are part of learning communities that promote shared knowledge, shared responsibilities, and successful outcomes, whose experiences will enable them to positively contribute to increasing the overall health of our communities and workforce.

Faculty in our college are empowered contributors in a shared governance process, successful scholars, educators, researchers, and leaders in their fields of expertise. They continually develop creative and innovative curriculum, and actively participate in college, university, and community affairs.

Our alumni are leaders in organizations and communities throughout the nation and are valued contributors to the education and training of our students.

We strive to increase the breadth and depth of our partnerships and strengthen our connections with the community, policymakers, and government lawmakers, furthering the involvement and impact of our college.

Ultimately, the College of Health and Human Services is a destination, both physical and virtual, for educators, professionals, scholars, and students.

Feel free to contact my office or any of our departments for additional information about our programs. Take a look around and let us know if you have any questions.

Go Hawks!
