The process of earning an academic degree is transformational. Every spring, the College celebrates a select group of students who were recommended by faculty for Dean's Awards as Outstanding Students in HHD. We recognize the dedication, accomplishment and vitality they brought to their studies, our campus, and our communities. Each of these students demonstrates what we mean when we call HHD "the College of Life."
HHD students' work reaches across the lifespan. They address personal and family development, wellness, early intervention for children, safety and prevention of trauma, and responses to illness and injury. They promote health and health care and fortify others through better nutrition, physical activity and recreation. They improve environments, form our homes and workplaces to the water and air quality of our planet.
