Mayborn College of Health Sciences

Dr. Colin Wilborn,  FNSCA, FISSN, CSCS*D, Executive Dean


The Mayborn College of Health Sciences is newly formed, bringing together the Scott and White School of Nursing, the School of Exercise and Sport Science, and the School of Health Professions, which houses the Doctor of Physical Therapy program, Master of Arts in Counseling program, Master of Science in Occupational Therapy program (beginning in 2020) and Master of Science in Physician Assistance Program (beginning in 2021).

The college’s focus is to prepare well-trained, distinctive leaders in a Christian learning environment for the health science fields. Students will be guided to exude ethical and moral attributes in professionalism, research, and the promotion of healing, wellness and quality of life. We are committed to mentoring and developing these leaders through the various programs within the Mayborn College of Health Sciences with a focus on upholding the vision and mission of the university. Our students receive a robust education and inter-professional, innovative learning opportunities, as well as the chance to go beyond the classroom with hands-on patient-care, research, service, and study-abroad opportunities.


The mission of the Mayborn College of Health Sciences is to engage students in a Christ‐centered learning environment where they will develop the knowledge, skills, and interprofessional competencies to become leaders in the complex and dynamic environment of health sciences. The college promotes the integration of health and restoration of the mind, body, and spirit through the preparation of students in a supportive and rigorous academic setting. Our students learn in a student‐centered, interprofessional, and innovative learning environment while engaging in opportunities to go beyond the classroom with hands‐on learning, research, and service.


The Mayborn College of Health Sciences will deliver graduates who are empowered to lead in their chosen field through a rigorous education in a Christ-centered, service‐focused, applied learning environment.
