Institute Leadership

The Leadership Team consolidates knowledge of best practices and insights about opportunities for collaborative and/or interprofessional practice and learning opportunities throughout IIHHS. The Team is responsible for stewardship of resources, space and equipment. As a collective, this council embraces a larger network of colleagues across academic units thus advancing goals of the Institute, the College and the University. Team members contribute to grants development through advice, research, suggestions, and participation in proposal preparation as appropriate. Some members of this Team are also members of the Harrisonburg & Rockingham Healthy Community Council, to assure a strong alignment between the identified needs of the community and the programs provided through the Institute.

The Team relies on advice and guidance from the IIHHS Steering Committee and joint meetings with the Steering Committee are scheduled annually. Membership of the IIHHS Steering Committee includes representatives of the Leadership Team to further assure continuity of action and intent.
