The newly named St. Ambrose College of Health and Human Services (CHHS) is poised to advance important changes occurring in education and the health and human service fields.
Changes began in July of 2010 when the School of Social Work became part of the former College of Education and Health Sciences. The newly named CHHS also houses the teacher education program and graduate programs in education, and oversees the Children's Campus. Those programs are being combined within a newly created School of Education within CHHS.
The new name "better reflects the diversity and scope" of programs offered by the steadily growing CHHS, said Sandra Cassady, PhD, dean of the college. "The School of Education will provide future and current teachers a range of opportunities with our undergraduate and graduate program offerings."
New programming in the health fields also is being considered.
