KPU rebrands the university's Faculty of Health

Wed, Apr 9, 2014

Metro Vancouver, B.C. - Kwantlen Polytechnic University's (KPU) Faculty of Community and Health Studies has been renamed the Faculty of Health, a change effective as of April 1.

The new name coincides with the faculty's only non-health-focused program - the Special Education Teaching Assistant program -; moving to the Faculty of Arts.

KPU's Faculty of Health houses the university's health programs, which include nursing, psychiatric nursing, health care assistance and health unit coordination. Programs vary in length, with options for baccalaureate degrees, diplomas and certificates, as well as continuing education/professional studies courses and workshops.

The Faculty will also oversee the university’s School of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which will be the first program of its kind to be offered by a public institution in B.C.
