expand/collapse Expand/collapse Historical Information

The Office of Allied Health Sciences was established by the university's Board of Trustees on 1 August 1970. Reporting to the Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs, the office was to help develop an appropriate administrative structure for allied health curricula on the campus and to serve as the focus of allied health education throughout the state. The field of allied health included all professional, technical, and supportive workers in patient care, public health, health research, and environmental health programs.

The office received basic personnel and equipment funds from the university through the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Health Affairs. Operating and development funds were provided by grants from the National Institutes of Health. During the second year of its existence, the Office of Allied Health Sciences assisted in the drafting of a study proposal to develop guidelines for the transfer of credit from community colleges to four-year institutions. This project, called the Articulation Study, was also funded by the National Institutes of Health and operated from July 1972 through June 1974.

While primarily functioning as a clearinghouse for information and as a support service to the health programs on campus, the office assumed increasing responsibility for continuing education gradually. On 1 April 1974, the Office of Allied Health Sciences and the Office of Continuing Education in the Health Sciences were combined.
