The purpose of the College is to offer educational programs designed to produce practitioners and prepare individuals who are interested in pursuing careers as educators in the health professions; to encourage, develop and support interest in research; and to provide health care, when appropriate, and continuing education services to the community.
The objectives of the College of Health Sciences are:
- To develop and implement educational programs designed to graduate health practitioners and educators based on employment demands and the availability of resources.
- To recruit students interested in careers in the health care field in programs offered in the College and to provide these students with career counseling, academic advisement, and tutoring designed to assist them in achieving career goals.
- To maintain full accreditation by appropriate agencies for all programs offered by the College.
- To recruit and retain a faculty capable of making significant contributions to the basic and applied research efforts of the supporting institutions.
- To encourage and promote the rendering of service to the community through the sponsorship of seminars, workshops, consultations, and the delivery of health care whenever appropriate.
