The role of "research and community" in education and health sciences is central to a college that prepares engaged practitioners who have sound foundations in evidence-based best practices. By nature, our research addresses challenges in communities we serve and focuses on a clear translation between theory and practice. Many of our students, both undergraduate and graduate, are mentored by faculty members and closely work with our partners in specific school and clinical settings.

Our Institute for Translational Research  supports faculty members’ collaborative scholarly activities (resulting in many published articles and books) while our many community partnerships provide exciting experiential learning opportunities both locally and abroad. Throughout each year, we offer several opportunities to celebrate and showcase student, faculty, and partner activities, marked by two signature events: ENHP Day in the spring and the Connecticut STEM Conference in the fall.

Through this commitment to community-based scholarly activities, we accept the challenge: to explore, to engage, and to excel.
