Interprofessional Education

Interprofessional Education (IPE) at CUW provides opportunities for students enrolled in health and human services programs to learn and train together. The goal is for collaborative learning, where students build their IPE communication skills, as well as knowledge base and understanding of other health and human service specialties, in order to fully appreciate how interprofessional education and practice positively impacts and nurtures patient-centered care.

IPE Mission Statement

We develop students in mind, body, and spirit to collaborate effectively within an interprofessional environment.


We carry out this IPE Mission to be regionally and nationally recognized for meaningful interprofessional education of our students as they learn and train for professional careers.

Core Objectives

To provide students opportunities for growth:
  • In interprofessional competencies
  • Through team-building activities and collaboration
  • Through interprofessional practice opportunities

We pursue our IPE mission, vision and objectives in the following ways:

  • Through rigorous and diverse academic programs that are consistent with the needs of our communities, and which allow students to fully discover and develop their vocation
  • Through purposeful growth of interprofessional infrastructure, facilities, and human resources, which support student learning, IPE certification, and experiences in a welcoming and professional environment
  • By developing future professionals who transform lives, influence communities and value their neighbors through servant leadership

Student Opportunities

At CUW we have a range of opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students to explore. View a list of IPE opportunities here!


Yearly spring and fall semester events occur to bring our health and human professions students together. Check the campus calendar or the blog for our current activities.
