Message from the Dean
The College of Health and Human Services at Sacramento State has a long and proud history of providing the region with health and human services professionals who are leaders in the region through their innovation, engagement, and impact. The college plays important roles in addressing the workforce needs of the region, in community engagement, and in research that matters. With more than 38,000 alumni from the college, chances are that if you interact with a nurse, a social worker, or a police officer in the region, that person is a Sac State alum. With nearly 7,000 majors, making it the largest college on campus, the programs offered in the college continue to be in high demand. The faculty and staff are committed to student success, which is one of the primary values of our mission.
New Law Enforcement Candidate Scholars’ (LECS) Program
History is made at Sacramento State! Our new Law Enforcement Candidate Scholars’ (LECS) Program – the first of its kind in the nation – became official Wednesday, Oct. 12, as President Robert S. Nelsen, Sacramento Police Department Chief Sam Somers, California Highway Patrol Assistant Chief Jonni Fenner, and LECS founding director Dr. Shelby Moffatt signed a partnership agreement in ceremonies at The WELL. More than 50 uniformed officers, along with University faculty and staff, witnessed the signing, which launches this unique “scholars to officers” program. Moffatt called it “a momentous, historic, groundbreaking occasion,” adding, “We believe this to be the gold standard in higher education.” Somers, who was #MadeAtSacState, called LECS a “model program” that will get “people into the (law enforcement) profession and ready to hit the streets.” LECS is open to juniors and seniors at Sacramento State, no matter their major.
