Purpose and Goals

Center Purpose and Goals

To promote Center scholarship aimed at the health sciences, it was necessary to align the mission and vision with the principles of scholarship set forth by the University Research Hub. In this way, the mission and vision are purposed to move forward on its new agenda, while maintaining its purpose as a Research Center. Based on Dean of Research, Dr. McCaslin’s presentation of Boyer’s (1990) Domains of Scholarship, the Center for Health and Nursing Research purpose promotes scholarship that serves one or more of the following goals:

Goal 1: Discovery

CHNR addresses the epistemological question, what is true, through supporting research that transforms disease-based paradigm of healthcare that creates barriers to care into constructs of health and wellness across the lifespan, including mental health.

Holding an Empirical Purpose: Researching the Constructs of Health and Wellness Across the Lifespan

Goal 2: Application

CHNR serves the community of healthcare practitioners, administrators, and educators with the pragmatic purpose of putting knowledge to work in the world. We support collaborative scholarship between academics and practitioners in order to co-create practical applications of knowledge across the fullest spectrum of health and wellness, including mental health.

Holding a Pragmatic Purpose: Researching Through the Healthcare Practitioner-Scholar

Goal 3: Integration

The ontological question of what is good directs the Center's mission to support health research addressing communities of need, including communities of color, LGBTQ2A, homeless, women and infants, immigrants, and the elderly. CHNR recognizes the need of underserved populations, and actively engages in interdisciplinary research among the fields of health science. Among the health science disciplines, we seek collaboration with scholars among the public health, environmental health and justice, community-based health, mental health, family health, and military health sectors.

Holding an Interdependent Purpose: Researching the Public Health for the Public Good

Goal 4: Teaching

CHNR answers the axiological question, what is valuable, through supporting research that values and promotes health education. Through advancing health education research, students gain access to dynamic best practices that serve their professional goals.

Holding an Educational Purpose: Researching Health Education
