Description

The Institute is regarded as a bridge between JMU and the greater Harrisonburg community by emphasizing community service, engaged learning and scholarship. The vision for IIHHS is rooted in the strong conviction that the health and human service professionals of the future, across disciplines, would need to overcome the barriers that traditional systems of care and/or service imposed and that the University has an obligation to nurture innovations in knowledge and practice that can surmount those barriers to yield outcomes beneficial to both campus and community. Academic departments gained a uniquely valuable resource through IIHHS for advancing clinical education services, fostering interprofessional education and practice, forging mutually beneficial relationships between the campus and community and preparing future health and human service professionals for 21st century roles.
