The University of Tulsa is creating a College of Health Sciences to further opportunities for our students and faculty while improving the wellbeing of residents in our community.

This new college will begin operations on Jan. 1, 2015, under the leadership of a dean and vice president for health sciences.

"The formation of a College of Health Sciences affords The University of Tulsa with new opportunities for student and faculty recruitment, research and interdisciplinary programs," TU President Steadman Upham said. "More importantly, this new college increases our ability to contribute to improved health and wellness across Tulsa — and, in fact, Oklahoma — where the medical field is in constant need of highly skilled professionals."

The College of Health Sciences will bring together several existing TU programs, including nursing, physician assistant, athletic training, exercise and sports science, and communication disorders. Additionally, the new college will house TU's faculty of community medicine and advance our strong partnership with the Laureate Institute for Brain Research.

The University of Tulsa currently is home to three undergraduate colleges: Henry Kendall College of Arts and Sciences, Collins College of Business, and College of Engineering and Natural Sciences. TU also offers programs for students seeking master's or doctoral degrees through the Graduate School and a top 100 legal education through our College of Law.
