– Conducting research and evidence-based quality improvement projects to improve population health and well-being on campus.
– Fostering innovative collaborative transdisciplinary initiatives across institutions to build healthy academic communities.  
– Serving as a premier resource for health and well-being professional development and leadership for higher education.
