Excellence Through Relevance

The College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions (ENHP) has a long-standing commitment to preparing professionals for service to the community. Our roots in the Greater Hartford area are deep, as demonstrated by the many partnerships with education, health, and community organizations we have built and nurtured over the years. Our mission's emphasis on preparing teachers, promoters of well-being, and leaders grounds us in a rich past and leads us toward our future. External affiliations are the key to integrating health and education science with community engagement, as exemplified by the institution-wide partnerships with the Hartford Public School system (est. 2011) and the Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center (est. 2010).

Excellence through Relevance To successfully bridge academic work and the needs of communities – translating theory into practice, and back – requires the resolve of all constituents to work collaboratively toward one common vision: Excellence through Relevance.


“Leadership in a Diverse Society” Explores Stereotypes and Hidden Prejudices

On November 13, over 150 people heard researcher Crystal Hoyt share findings about stereotyping, hidden prejudices, and how leaders can be more mindful in their approach to diversity. Hoyt is currently an associate professor of leadership studies and psychology at the University of Richmond.

The event was sponsored by the Center for Leadership in Education and Health in the Institute for Translational Research (ITR), which serves as a college-wide umbrella for collaborative research activities in the College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions and its community partners. Diana LaRocco directs the Center.
