Dean’s Welcome

December signals the end of the fall semester and the beginning of the Holiday Season in the CHHS. We have had a wonderful semester and graduated 599 undergraduate and graduate students with degrees from CHHS. This represents 30% of the total UNCW graduating class of 2042 students for fall 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 Holiday Season is an opportunity for all of us to pause and remember just how fortunate we are. We have all been very blessed to have the opportunity to devote our professional careers to help others live healthier, more prosperous and productive lives. I want to thank all the faculty and staff of the CHHS for a great semester. 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 2018! 

CHHSTalk is a stakeholder marketing tool. The purpose is to communicate about the many things going on within the 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 December issue of CHHSTalk 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 stories to
