Our nationally regarded school is dedicated to preparing you—through programs in nursing, public health, exercise science, and physical education teaching—for the many rewards of guiding people, communities, and populations toward improved health outcomes.

Welcome from Dean Kenner

Our mission is clear: We educate aspiring health professionals to become leaders, energized to change the health care landscape. Our students work closely with faculty and with local health care partners to build a solid foundation of knowledge and practical skill. Challenged to question deeply, think globally, and practice ethically, our students immerse themselves in the issues of today to help shape them tomorrow. I invite you to share this journey.

Carole Kenner, Dean
