The College of Nursing and Allied Health is comprised of one school and three departments working together to prepare diverse populations for careers within the health professions. Among its units are the School of Nursing, Department of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, Department of Rehabilitation Counseling, and the Department of Recreation & Leisure Studies.
