Dean’s Welcome

May signals the end of the spring semester and the academic year. We have had a wonderful semester and graduated 555 undergraduate and graduate students with degrees from CHHS. This represents 21 percent of the total UNCW graduating class of 2,667 for spring 2017! To all of our students, we wish you all the best as you begin your next journey. For the faculty and staff, thank you for all you have done to help our students succeed! 

The end of the academic year is a time for all of us to pause and remember just how fortunate we are. We have been very blessed to have the opportunity to devote our professional careers to helping others live healthier, more prosperous and more productive lives. I want to thank the faculty and staff of CHHS for a wonderful year. We continue to make outstanding progress as a College since our beginning in 2010; however, there is much to do in our journey to become a sustainable College of distinction. I look forward to continuing our journey in 2017-18. 

CHHSTalk is a stakeholder marketing tool. The purpose is to communicate about the many things going on within CHHS to remind us to remember why we do what we do. That is to say, this E-Newsletter is the CHHS being its best self! It is our hope that you find joy while reading the CHHSTalk

The May issue is a special edition – “A Pictorial Expo” of our faculty, staff and students. It is our hope that “a picture is worth a thousand words.” Please send your feedback and future story ideas to
