Allied Health, Physical Education, and Athletics Division

The Allied Health, Physical Education & Athletics Division is committed to the health and well-being of our students and the community to promote diversity, equity and compassion for all.

Through innovative academic programs with a commitment to diversity, the nursing and allied health programs educate and train professionals to serve the health care needs of our region and contribute to the well-being of our global community.

The health, physical education and athletics programs promote fitness and health in order to build a healthier future for all. 

As a division, we embrace the principle that the health and well-being of all people and of all communities is essential to a thriving, equitable society. 

We do this within an equity-minded framework considering the diverse and unique backgrounds of our students, faculty, and staff.
