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).
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.
