On May 16, 2014, after more than three years of evaluation and input from Baylor regents, deans, faculty and staff, and external entities, including healthcare partners, the Baylor Board of Regents approved the creation of the College of Health and Human Sciences. The academic units that form the College - Communication Sciences and Disorders, Family and Consumer Sciences, Health, Human Performance and Recreation, Department of Public Health, and the Division of Health Professions - share a common purpose: improving health and the quality of life. A transformational naming gift was made in 2014 renaming the college the Robbins College of Health and Human Sciences.
Since then, Robbins College has the third largest enrollment among academic units for both undergraduate and graduate students at Baylor and graduate program growth has increased by 125%. In addition, the Department of Health, Human Performance and Recreation has is the second largest pre-health program (Health Human Sciences) within Baylor University.
Your gifts to the Robbins College Health and Human Sciences Excellence Fund provide unrestricted support that allows Robbins College Dean, Rodney Bowden, to address critical issues and pursue initiatives that enrich the college’s academic mission and strategic vision. In an ever-changing environment, leadership donations support the core of the College by promoting efforts to help students achieve their educational goals and faculty pursue world-changing research.
