Veterans Hall

Health and human services degree programs and new programs under consideration such as respiratory therapy, speech language pathology and physician assistant studies, are now located in our new building, Veterans Hall.

Additional laboratories will allow students to practice skills, giving them the opportunity to learn beyond the classroom through hands-on experiences, peer to peer activities in laboratory settings, standardized patient experiences, simulation learning and real-world client interactions. These practice opportunities prepare our graduates to join tomorrow’s health and human services workforce.
