Serving the Whole Person

At the Morrison Family College of Health, we are committed to meeting the needs of the whole person – mind, body, spirit, and social connections – within the context of family and community. We will prepare the next generation of leaders to improve health and community well-being. With your partnership, we can make a difference for students today, and for healthy communities into the future.

We’re reimagining how health and community leaders can address the needs of the whole person, regardless of birth and circumstance. Our promise is that we will educate students how to use and integrate knowledge from different professions and fields to influence and improve health at the individual, family, community and systems levels. We believe that the most relevant and sustainable solutions to advance healthy communities and people is when those most impacted by inequities are also a part of the solution.

We’re also striving to meet an acute demand for health professionals who have the technical skills, cultural competencies and moral courage to pioneer new efforts, and see complex problems as opportunities for innovation to improve health and community well-being. The Morrison Family College of Health is guided by the University of St. Thomas’ mission to educate morally responsible leaders who advance the common good.

Meet the Founding Dean

For Dr. MayKao Hang, developing the next generation of health leaders who respond to the people who live in our communities right now is critical. "It is really about educating leaders who are going to go out into the world to have the moral courage and the cultural competency to deliver services...but can also advocate to highlight and remove the barriers for those who are underserved," says Dr. Hang. "The Morrison Family College of Health is brand new, so we can design this with the future in mind. That means being far more globally, ethically and technology oriented."

Areas of Need

Faculty Support

Training tomorrow’s health and community leaders requires the expertise of today's leaders. To shift the paradigm from a traditional, siloed approaches to a whole person, whole family design, we need endowed professorships and community partnerships. The Morrison Family College of Health will become a leader and innovator in how we advance the health of our community.

Capital Needs

We need our graduates to hit the ground running on their first day after graduation. That means providing labs, tools and facilities that give our students professional, hands-on experience before they graduate.

Annual Fund

Big dreams start with commitment. By becoming an annual donor, you'll be part of a team contributing to the health and growth of our community. Your support at any level is crucial to our success.
