The primary purpose of the Administrative core is to consolidate administrative and research functions for the purposes of maximizing administrative efficiency, synergizing the research enterprise and stimulating trans-disciplinary scientific innovation for the Center’s four core areas:
- Training and Education
- Community Engagement
The Administrative Core will:
- Develop and implement a Center-wide research administrative process designed to improve efficiency and coordination of all health disparities research functions for the purpose of facilitating the overall success of the Center and its members.
- Synergize Center-wide research activities and programs to promote scientific collaboration and workforce diversity for the purpose of generating novel approaches to eliminating health disparities and/or promoting health equity among Native and Pacific Peoples.
- Catalyze and support the Center’s members to develop research collaborations across scientific and community expertise that will lead to the creation of new interdisciplinary health equity science dedicated to making meaningful improvements in health disparities for communities of Native and Pacific Peoples.
