He brings a fresh perspective that results in success for his team and for UNHS."Barbara Shousha, UNHS Director

About the UNHS Course Catalog
The UNHS Course Catalog is an annual print publication that was significantly redesigned in 2023. Past versions of the catalog were smaller in size and contained a higher volume of pages with dense content in a black and white format. The redesign included a larger overall size which allowed UNHS to include fewer pages while still maintaining the same core information that’s always been included in the catalog. The new catalog design is also produced in full color with more design elements to help improve the readability of the content and a new stitching design that allows users to easily spread the catalog open to any page without it automatically closing, which occurred with the old catalog design.
