In 2010, a select group of senior community leaders from a broad range of education- and health-related organizations and institutions graciously agreed to form the College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions (ENHP) Board of Visitors. These individuals are not employed by the college but guide, advise, and support the administration in furthering the college’s overall strategic interests and directions.
