Faculty in the College of Health and Human Sciences are actively engaged in basic and applied research, tackling critical issues on a wide range of human concerns from health and wellness through the life cycle, to educational reform, to sustainable design and housing. As a human centered College, we are guided by the principle that research should not only contribute to scientific knowledge but also be translated into programs, policies, and applications that put that knowledge to work. Faculty members collaborate extensively with colleagues across the College and University and at other Universities and agencies. Students, both graduate and undergraduate, enjoy the opportunity to work alongside faculty and participate in cutting-edge research.
