Message from the Interim Chair

Jim CieslaWelcome to the School of Health Studies. The school is a new organizational unit of the College of Health and Human Sciences, but it is an assemblage of several of the college’s excellent long-standing academic programs—Medical Laboratory Sciences, Nutrition and Dietetics and Public Health. If you are new to NIU and the college, welcome! Do take a few minutes to look at our wonderful educational and career options. If you are one of our students, an alumnus or a friend of one of our programs, be assured your program will continue to thrive in its new academic home! The School of Health Studies is new, but our programs are built on a solid foundation of excellence in teaching and learning, scholarship and community engagement.
