IBACS INTERNAL ADVISORY BOARD

 

  • Larry Silbart -  Vice Provost for Strategic Initiatives
  • Andrew Moiseff -  Associate Dean for Behavioral and Life Sciences
  • Michelle Williams -  Associate Vice President, Research

 

 

  • Michael Lynch -  Director, Humanities Institute
  • George Kuchel - Director, Center for Aging, UConn Health Center
  • Amy Gorin -  Associate Director, Institute for Collaboration on Health, Intervention, and Policy

 

The remit of the internal advisory board is to advise both on shorter- and longer-term issues of strategic importance (i.e. advising both on Institute-internal matters but also on issues that may impact externally on the Institute – e.g. strategic developments at UConn, building and space developments, etc.). The board will also monitor and evaluate the extent to which the Institute is meeting both its own and UConn’s broader institutional aims.
