Mission Statement
The mission of the Hofstra University School of Health Sciences and Human Services is to educate students in the theory and practices of their specialized area of study, with a strong foundation in the natural, social and behavioral sciences. Through competency-based instruction, field experience and research training, students are educated to become effective and compassionate clinicians, evidence-based practitioners, policymakers, managers and advocates who promote health equity. Students learn to provide therapeutic and developmental services; prevent, diagnose and treat illness and disabilities; and design, implement, administer and evaluate health promotion programs, policies and systems. Students receive clinical education in approaches that maximize occupational, communicative, biological, psychological, social and interpersonal development across the lifespan. Students are prepared to work in settings that include the home, the school, the clinic, the hospital and other health care facilities, the work place, the government and community agencies. The School of Health Sciences and Human Services serves as a community resource by offering continuing education opportunities, promoting collaborative clinical and research initiatives, advocating for underserved populations, and providing services that model best practices.
