The Center for Online Education recently ranked the College of Nursing and Health Innovation's online master's degree program No. 19 on its list of Best Online Master's in Nursing Programs. UTA was the only UT System school to make the list, and one of only two universities in Texas.

The College of Nursing and Health Innovation saw enrollment gains in the 2015-16 academic year. Nursing enrollment increased by 26 percent, while kinesiology enrollment increased by 10 percent. Total enrollment is about 21,000.

Larry Nelson, associate professor of kinesiology, is transforming physical education in Dallas and Fort Worth schools with Dancing Classrooms. The program builds social awareness, confidence, and self-esteem in school children through dance.

Scores of College of Nursing and Health Innovation students, faculty, staff, and alumni flocked to the UTA campus for Homecoming 2016. They participated in the parade, renewed acquaintances at a CONHI tailgating party, and cheered on the Mavs at the evening basketball game.
