Welcome from the Dean

On behalf of the faculty, staff, and students of the St. Ambrose University College of Health and Human Services, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website. As the Dean of this College, I am proud of the high-quality programs offered by our dedicated faculty and the many accomplishments of our students and graduates.

Our College is home to programs in teacher education, kinesiology, nursing, occupational therapy, physical therapy, physician assistant studies, social work, and speech-language pathology. Many of our programs are professionally accredited and our graduates enjoy a high pass rate on their respective licensing and certifying examinations. Students complete top notch internships and practicum experiences as part of the professional education. Other graduate programs are geared toward advancing the careers of professionals in the fields of education, health care, and human services.

We have much to offer students and the community. Our mission is to prepare leaders in the human services. In that vein, we are committed to the development of proficient and ethical professionals through innovative programs emphasizing excellence in teaching, scholarship, and collaboration with interdisciplinary and community based partnerships. Our graduates provide services in a diverse and global society that enhance human resources and foster life-long learning. To help prepare them, a growing number of opportunities exist for our students to study abroad and immerse themselves in other cultures.

The College of Health and Human Services has much to offer. If you are not already a student in one of our programs, I encourage you to visit and experience the tradition of academic excellence and student success here at St. Ambrose University.
