Dean's Circle

The Dean's Circle for the College of Health and Human Development brings together distinguished alumni and community partners to discuss and engage in exploring the role of the college in the community.

Dean's Circle members play a critical role in the mission of the college, which is to prepare competent and caring professionals who share our commitment to enhance and promote the health and well-being of the diverse communities we serve. As professionals, they speak for us within the community and share valuable perspectives and ideas. They serve as fundraisers, advisors and advocates to the benefit of the college and the university.

Opportunities for volunteerism and outreach in the college are also available through our alumni chapters and community advisory councils within our departments and academic programs. These specialized advisory councils are comprised of industry experts who advise on curriculum for our many accredited programs.
