|Welcome to Indiana State University’s College of Nursing, Health, and Human Services (CNHHS). It is an honor to serve as the founding Dean of this new College. We are committed to our mission of inspiring professionals and students through an interdisciplinary approach while developing skilled leaders, educators, researchers, and innovators in Nursing, Health, and Human Services. Our programs focus around our core values of caring, health, integrity, respect, and performance with the vision of becoming eminent in providing qualified professionals serving diverse populations through learning, leadership, scholarship, innovation, and community engagement.|
Our college was created on July 1, 2007 with the intention to increase
the visibility of health professions at ISU, empower the faculty who
advocate for health professions, promote greater collaboration between
health-oriented units, attract external resources, initiate and develop
new health-related programs, strengthen ties with community partners and
to better meet regional and state needs. I am excited for
you to navigate through our website to see all that we have accomplished
over the past three years.
The College of Nursing, Health, and Human Services offers a wide array of programs that lead to careers in Athletic Training, Dietetics, Exercise Science, Family Consumer Sciences, Health, Human Development, Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Physical Education, Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant Studies, Recreation, Recreation Therapy, Social Work, and Sport Management. Our programs are accredited by eleven different governing bodies and are supported by thirteen laboratories.
We are committed to providing our students with a supportive learning
environment that is progressive, challenging and creative. Last
year our faculty and students participated in more than 160 community
engagement/experiential learning projects, served over 300 community
agencies and won more than 40 awards. Through these activities,
and the opportunity to be involved with ten different student
organizations within our college, our students obtain the necessary
skills and credentials to become competent practicing professionals.
