Programs of Distinction

Whether you desire to become a teacher, a physical therapist, a nursing administrator, a leader in schools, or serve in any of a host of professional roles, your experiences in the College of ENHP at the University of Hartford will give you the attitudes, skills, and knowledge to succeed. The theme that unites our nationally known faculty and accredited programs is one of Excellence through Relevance. This means that we emphasize a link between theory and practice, between what we teach and what you are preparing to do. Numerous external affiliations - including those with our anchor partners, the Hartford Public Schools and Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center - offer a unique, praxis-oriented learning environment. 

We work hard to make your time in any of the ENHP programs relevant to your future career and to the local, national, or global communities we serve. ENHP faculty and administration are committed to working with you to translate knowledge into action and to prepare you academically and socially to make a positive, meaningful difference. Our teaching, scholarship, and service activities are dedicated to the single goal of integrating education and health science with community engagement. Service-learning, internships, student research, and other forms of engaged learning are woven into every one of our academic offerings.
