Science is the foundation of our understanding of the natural and physical world that sustains us, life on our planet, and of humanity’s efforts to promote health in the body, mind, and spirit for all persons and peoples. The science and health disciplines in our college directly contribute to healthy groups, organizations, and communities across cultural contexts and within sustainable natural environments. Through interprofessional collaborations, the College of Science and Health facilitates high-impact educational and professional experiences that develop global citizens whose work promotes the advancement of science and holistic health, healing and well-being of persons and peoples, and strives toward a healthier natural world in ways that are equitable, inclusive, accessible, and sustainable.
