The Urban Health Education Center (UHEC) is an academic network of undergraduate and graduate health, education and human service disciplines within the University.

The purpose of UHEC is interprofessional education to effect the well being of children, families and communities. This is accomplished through:

• integrated learning experiences in common competencies shared across related health, teacher education and human service disciplines, and
• community-based, interprofessional clinical and practicum experiences as integral to the learning process.

Students within the UHEC network will find themselves interacting with students in other professional disciplines around common content and projects in the learning process.
