Education Programs

When educating students, the College of Allied Health Professions (CAHP) seeks to prepare tomorrow’s healthcare professionals for an increasingly diverse population and the ever changing face of healthcare. Faculty are interested in learning about an applicant’s whole profile, which includes lived experiences and personal attributes. This holistic approach seeks to be more inclusive and prepare a more diverse body of graduates that match the demographic changes in Nebraska and beyond.
