The Institute for Health and Wellness

The Institute for Health and Wellness (IHW) emerged as a priority from the development of the Monmouth University Strategic Plan, which calls for ongoing expansion in the health sciences at the University. It will be a forum for education, research and collaboration on issues of human health and wellness delivered through scholarship, supported programs, community engagement, and local partnerships.

With nearly half of our academic offerings directly related to the health professions, Monmouth University is uniquely positioned to partner with hospital systems and other healthcare organizations to advance and amplify initiatives that will positively impact the health and well-being of our region.

The University also benefits from the success of its highly regarded centers of distinction, including the Polling Institute and the Urban Coast Institute, which serve as valuable models for the planning and development of the IHW.

The IHW will harness the diverse resources of academic expertise and practical experience available to us as the region’s premier private coastal university. Working with our partners, the Institute will advance a broad spectrum of healthcare initiatives, including advocacy, education, policymaking, and workforce development.
