Taste of College of Health, Human Services to be held Tuesday

Staff Report

A taste of the College of Health & Human Services will be held Tuesday, Sept 4 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Library Quad.

The event will include music, food, informational tables and giveaways.

Jeanne Lord, the interim dean of the College of Health and Human Services, said in an earlier interview on Aug 20 that this event is part of her goal to create a more seen college.

“We want to create on campus visibility and identity,” Lord said.

The idea for the event comes from similar events Lord has seen around other places.

“You’ve heard of a ‘taste of Chicago’, or ‘taste of Champaign/Urbana’, so we’re going to do something (like that),” Lord said. “So … students walking by (the event) get a sense of ‘oh, a college of health and human services, this is kind of neat. Who are you and what do you do?’”
