The EHSSA is a great supplement to the Environmental Health Science (EHS) Program. EHSSA strives to enrich students through exposure to real world experiences in the environmental and occupational health fields that they may not be exposed to in the classroom. The purpose of this organization is to have fun in a natural environmental setting while also providing service and education to the outside community!
The mission of the Environmental Health Science Student Association (EHSSA) coincides with the mission of the Environmental Health Science (EHS) Program at Western Kentucky University. This mission is to educate students in preparation for an exciting career in the environmental health sciences. The EHS Program is committed to providing south central Kentucky, the state, and the nation with entry-level environmental professionals. The program provides students with a background in assessing environmental resources, including water, air, and land resources, in relation to environmental and human health.
Our vision is to see an overall improvement in human and ecosystem health on campus and in our community in relation to the environment. We believe that as an organization, the small steps we take can make a great beginning for a healthier change in the community.
Who Should Join?
