Better health outcomes require better solutions.CHS Dean Helitzer

At the College of Health Solutions, our entire focus is on improving health. We understand that a better solution can come from anyone, which is why we are open to all ideas, all backgrounds and all perspectives. Through collaboration and inclusion, we aim to make the world a better, healthier place. Yes, it's a big goal — but one you'd expect from the most innovative university in the nation.

We got our start as the College of Health Solutions in 2012 when ASU moved multiple health programs into one school focused on improving health from different perspectives. Since then, we've developed an innovative college model that encourages faculty, staff and students to work together to tackle our world's biggest health challenges.

Today, we're preparing more than 6,500 students, including more than 5,500 undergraduate students and 1,000 graduate students, to create the future of health and health care. I love being the dean of such a dynamic college, full of students interested in making a real difference, who want to help now — students like you. Thank you for joining us here as we work to change health for the better.
