The disciplines in the college have their roots in outreach to the community; they all prepare students for their professions by engaging them in activities within the community that applies the theories and concepts learned in the classroom for a comprehensive understanding of the issues. Students are required to complete clinical experiences, field work, or internships through one of the many affiliation agreements with a myriad of health and human service agencies in our region.

CHHS is dedicated to improve the quality of life in the community through education, service, collaboration, leadership, and scholarship.
