Welcome to CHHS!
The College of Health and Human Services was established in August, 2002, and consists of seven academic units:
- Allied Health
- Communication Sciences and Disorders
- Family and Consumer Sciences
- The School of Nursing
- The School of Kinesiology, Recreation and Sport
- Public Health
- Social Work
The Academic Center for Excellence, the Institute for Rural Health, the Kentucky Emergency Medical Services Academy, and the South-Central Kentucky Area Health Education Center are also housed in or overseen by CHHS.
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. Two nationally recognized mobile health and wellness units provide ways for students to apply their newly acquired skills in the provision of prevention services to residences in our region. CHHS is dedicated to improve the quality of life in the community through education, service, collaboration, leadership, and scholarship.
