Make a Positive Impact
Our values of community, hospitality, respect, stewardship and love of learning reflect our commitment to lift up others and celebrate our common humanity. These aren’t just words on a plaque, but lifelong ideals that will shape your approach to leading in healthcare careers and the communities you serve.
Faculty members in each of the professional departments in the School of Health Professions are not only academically prepared to teach, but also have significant professional practice experience. This combination allows faculty to offer students rigorous academic program content as well as understanding the application of this content in the context of real-world professional practice.
