The Associate Director will be responsible for the overall functioning of the Center for Public Health Initiatives (CPHI), a University-wide center founded in 2007 by the Provost’s Office to promote interdisciplinary research, education and practice in public health.

The Associate Director position provides critical administrative leadership and support to the CPHI and is an important link between CPHI and partner Centers and Departments at the University.
