The vision for the Vera Z. Dwyer College of Health Sciences is that each school within the college will be recognized as a leader in the provision of care/services and as the source of continuing education in health care. The college would be viewed not only as the sole public provider of education in the geographic area, but each will be recognized for excellence. The South Bend region faces worker shortages in all health care disciplines.
