Welcome from Dean Nicole Dash!

Welcome to the UNT College of Health & Public Service. I’m Dr. Nicole Dash and I want you to know that I love being Dean of such a vibrant college that prepares our students for careers that make a difference in the lives of so many. I’ve served the College for more than a decade now, and in those years, I’ve gotten to know the College, its people, and many of its students very well, and I’m so proud of all of the things we’ve achieved.

We’ve grown to seven academic departments with 11 undergraduate and 14 graduate programs, and I’ve witnessed firsthand the hard work it’s taken to become what we are today. Not only that, but I’ve watched so many of our students grow into the successful leaders of our health and public service sectors around the country and world.

Yes, we’re a College, but we’re also a family, and as a student, you can expect to get to know your faculty and staff, and get the personalized experience you expect. I also can’t wait to continue to expand on the College’s strong reputation, build our research, and create the new opportunities you deserve from a top-tier University.
