Welcome to the College of Health and Human Development

Learn the skills to enhance, enrich, and empower the human experience. Serve your community as a health advocate, nurse, exercise physiologist, audiologist, environmental health specialist, youth counselor, hospitality & tourism specialist, food scientist, physical therapist, assistive technology specialist, and more.

We are honing skills and finding solutions that improve the quality of life for individuals, communities and families. Health and Human Development is focused on preventing problems involving health and well-being, and where such issues exist, we address them through rehabilitation and rejuvenation.

Our alumni are in professions that enrich health and well-being, fitness and activity, and living environments. Together, HHD students, faculty, staff, and community improve the quality of life through research, education, and action.
