College of HHD

Office of the Dean

Greetings from Dean Farrell J. Webb

Dean Farrell J. WebbWelcome to the College of Health and Human Development (HHD). We’re glad you’re here!

Through our academic departments and programs and community focused centers, we improve personal and family development, increase wellness, reach out for early intervention, and help prevent or address trauma and injury. We promote health and health care and strengthen understanding of nutrition, physical activity and recreation and the roles they play in our lives. We improve environments--from homes and workplaces to the water and air quality of our planet.

Faculty and Advising Staff help students stay on course and can open doors to mentoring opportunities. The real-world experience students get from service learning, internships, and community engagement, leads to a graduation day enriched with a boost of professional confidence. We help each other thrive through diversity, curiosity, academic development, community engagement, and professionalism.

The process of earning an academic degree is transformational, and the faculty, staff and I are excited about the opportunities you’ll find with us. Explore and get to know CSUN HHD.
