You may never have another chance to immerse yourself in a different culture with the student point of view. Wander beyond your corner of the earth. Roam across borders and oceans. Embrace cultures different from your own. Experience the adventure of a lifetime! Studying abroad will broaden your perspective from JMU's campus in Harrisonburg in ways that you can only imagine.
- The Institute for Innovation in Health and Human Services. http://www.hhs.jmu.edu/index.html
Are We Connected? This is the question we ask ourselves every day at the Institute for Innovation in Health and Human Services. It reminds us that knowledge is only as good as the connections it makes and that the connections between the campus and community are a mighty engine for the advancement of knowledge. We pursue innovations in health and human services by conscientiously connecting academic dedication to education, research, and service with community awareness of what people truly need. For those connections to advance scholarship on the campus and wellness in the community, they need to be sustained by the synergies of faculty and students and community leaders and engaged citizens whose interactions pay off in knowledge dividends
