The College of Health and Human Services was created on July 1, 2007 with the intention to increase the visibility of health professions at ISU, empower the faculty who advocate for health professions, promote collaboration between health-oriented departments, support health-related degree programs, strengthen ties with community partners, and to better meet regional and state needs.
The College fosters student excellence and develops productive citizens who function as skilled health and human services professionals to improve the health and wellbeing of the communities we serve. We exemplify teaching, scholarship, service, and community engagement through health initiatives, innovative thinking, and lifelong learning. Our vision is to serve as a leader in developing health and human services professionals who will positively influence communities. The college’s programs focus on the core values of caring, health, integrity, respect, and performance. Faculty and staff are committed to providing students with a supportive learning environment that is progressive, challenging, and creative. Students engage in experiential learning to obtain the necessary skills and credentials to become skilled professionals. High quality support services contribute to student success as all faculty are dedicated to providing students with effective academic advising. Study abroad experiences are also available.
The School of Nursing at Indiana State University admitted their first class of students in September 1963. Currently, the undergraduate program is housed in two nursing departments within the School of Nursing in the College of Health and Human Services. The traditional four-year campus-based baccalaureate degree nursing track is administered through the Department of Baccalaureate Nursing - https://www.indstate.edu/health/department/bn. Distance education tracks for students entering the program with registered nurse licensure and for students entering with licensed practical nurse licensure are administered through the Department of Baccalaureate Nursing Completion - https://www.indstate.edu/health/department/bnc.
Departments in the College include Applied Health Sciences - https://www.indstate.edu/health/department/ahs, Applied Medicine and Rehabilitation - https://www.indstate.edu/health/department/amr, Kinesiology, Recreation and Sport - https://www.indstate.edu/health/department/krs, and Social Work - https://www.indstate.edu/health/department/social-work. These departments support degree programs designed to prepare students to enter a wide range of professional fields in health and human services
Through responsive, collaborative relationships with faculty, staff, students, alumni, schools, and business and industry the College of Health and Human Services is committed to serving the needs of Indiana.
