The College of Health and Human Services (CHHS) was established as the doorway for the University of North Carolina Wilmington to make a positive impact on the health and quality of life of residents of the state of North Carolina and beyond.  In line with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the overarching goal of the CHHS is to help individuals, families and communities live healthier, more prosperous and more productive lives.

We strive to accomplish this goal through excellence in teaching, scholarship and service.  Faculty, staff and students within CHHS are passionate about the development, dissemination and application of knowledge that can enhance health and quality of life, especially within underserved communities and populations of our state, region, nation and world.  

CHHS consists of three professional schools:  School of Health and Applied Human Sciences, School of Nursing, and School of Social Work.  These Schools offer degree programs in nursing, clinical research and product development, social work, athletic training, exercise science, gerontology, public health, healthful living and fitness education, recreation therapy, and recreation, sport leadership and tourism management. Several of these programs have achieved rigorous national accreditation.

Our committment to applied learning enables our students to develop and apply knowledge regarding health and human services while recognizing and building upon the innate strengths and dignity of individuals and communities in which they work.  In this, we prepare the highest quality professional who possesses a unique understanding of how to synthesize knowledge in interprofessional teams to address real community problems.
