Letter From The Dean

Improving Lives of Our Citizens, Families and Communities

At the College of Human Environmental Sciences, we empower our students to bring about positive change in the world by improving overall quality of life. Our college brings together a wide range of disciplines which focus on the interaction between individuals, families and the environment – helping the very young to the very old enhance their mental, physical and financial well-being.

CHES continually adjusts, innovates and adds areas of study that impact the human condition. We are determined to provide enhanced learning opportunities to our students through technology updates, classroom upgrades and experiential learning offerings. We must also ensure that faculty are provided essential resources to conduct advanced research, engage in outreach and prepare a new generation of professionals that share our goal of improving lives.

While the reach of CHES, through our students, alumni and faculty members is great, our need is even greater. Financial support is imperative to enable us to train future professionals who will carry on our mission.

We call upon you to lend your support, because together, we can do so much more to improve the lives of our citizens, families and communities.
