Thus, the center stands at the nexus of the University's mission and value to be "private University with a public purpose" that is "committed to community."
With its explicit mission to engage community partners to facilitate collaborative research, center members shape clinical practice, provide service, and prepare the next generation of clinicians, researchers, and educators. Initiatives include:
