The College of Health and Human Services is proud to present the 2018-19 edition of its Faculty Research Profiles. With seven academic disciplines and an array of centers and institutes, the college continues to encourage and champion students who go on to serve our diverse and growing region as healthcare practitioners, human services professionals, educators, researchers, advocates and leaders.
In our booklet, we also share the ways in which the college is making an impact on campus and throughout the region. Some of those impact statements include:
- With 4,561 students, we award more degrees than any other college at Fresno State
- The 257 faculty members in our college represent 17 percent of the total faculty at the University
- Our students completed 29,125 service-learning and community service hours
- 75 percent of doctoral degrees earned at the University are by CHHS students in our Doctor of Physical Therapy and Doctor of Nursing Practice programs
- CHHS students encompass 18 percent of the entire student body at Fresno State
- 80 percent of students are from the San Joaquin Valley, with many of them choosing to stay and serve in the Valley long after graduation
Through these profiles, we hope to encourage interprofessional collaboration and engaged partnerships in the community which will allow faculty to pave the way for students to connect to service-learning opportunities, internships and community-based research.
While each of our academic disciplines, centers and institutes are unique, we all share a common commitment to boldly educate and empower our students for success!
