Our graduates will continue the tradition of excellence by working as members of collaborative, interprofessional teams that provide compassionate, client-centered, and culturally competent care to individuals, families, and communities in a variety of settings and roles; by engaging in lifelong scholarship; and by becoming leaders in their areas of specialization and interest.

The five pillars of our mission are as follows:
