College of Health and Human Services
Dean: Barbara Arrington
Associate Dean: Neil B. Vroman
The College of Health and Human Services, established in 1968, was created in response to the growing need for programs in higher education that prepare young men and women for health-related careers. The college offers undergraduate instruction leading to the bachelor of science degree in communication sciences and disorders, family studies, health management and policy, kinesiology, nursing, occupational therapy, recreation management and policy, and social work. Each program enables students to acquire the basic knowledge and skills needed to practice their chosen professions and to obtain a broad cultural background in the humanities and social sciences.
A limited number of well-qualified freshmen who have expressed an
interest in a health-related career, but who are undecided about a
