The College of Allied Health Sciences, UC’s 16th college, was founded in 1998 to unite programs spread throughout the university, including communication disorders, nutrition, genetic counseling, medical technology and physical therapy.
In the last seven years, the college has added programs and nearly quadrupled its enrollment—from 470 students in 2000 to more than 2,800 in 2013.
To accommodate the growth, the college has implemented successful distance-learning programs in medical laboratory sciences, health information management, animal audiology and speech-language pathology—the latter designed specifically for a group of students traveling between New York and Israel.
The college is located in the Hastings L. and William A. French Building, named in honor of the generosity of the Hastings L. and William A. French families. Hastings L. French, who died in 1914, started his career as a soap salesman for Procter & Gamble and eventually became the company's first secretary. His nephew, William A. French, established The Hastings L. French Research Fund for Cancer in memory of his uncle.
