The College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions (ENHP) cultivates relationships with the following local, national, and international partners that offer rich, collaborative learning and research environments for our students, faculty, and community members.

Our partners contribute in a range of ways and collaborate across multiple ENHP departments and the larger University community:

  • Cooperative partners offer defining learning experiences that are an integral part of our students’ success.
  • Some partners focus on knowledge production via research, contribution to the literature, and dissemination with communities.
  • Clinical partners offer professional apprenticeship opportunities where hands-on learning allows students to gain skills and knowledge in the field.
  • Our Pathway partners extend this clinical experience to include additional learning exchange opportunities.

ENHP faculty and administration listen to our community partners to identify public scholarship and data needs for site-specific problems. We translate current research literature for community benefit and leverage the shared learning taking place by students to foster thoughtful academic and scholarly work while preparing the next generation of professionals.

ENHP’s Board of Visitors includes established leaders and experts from partner organizations in education, nursing, health, and rehabilitation sciences to provide guidance about current trends and the direction of the college.
