On May 16, 2014, after more than three years of evaluation and input from Baylor regents, deans, faculty and staff, and external entities, including healthcare partners and the consulting firm Grant Thornton, the Baylor Board of Regents approved the creation of the College of Health and Human Sciences. The academic units that form the College — Communication Sciences and DisordersHuman Sciences and DesignHealth, Human Performance and RecreationDepartment of Occupational TherapyDepartment of Physical TherapyDepartment of Public Health and the Division of Health Professions — share a common purpose: improving health and the quality of life.  A transformational naming gift was made in 2014 renaming the college the Robbins College of Health and Human Sciences.
