HSC Management Group

Philosophy and Purpose

The HSC Management Group promotes continuous building of collaboration among its partners, especially in regard to creative space usage, joint program integration, maintenance efficiencies and building culture. Further building of collaboration includes expansion to community partners who will assist in fulfilling the LMHSC mission of enhancing health care, strengthening medical health science education and interactive research initiatives within the health sciences.

The HSC Management Group is responsible for the daily operations of the Health Science Center facility. Therefore they are responsible for assuring that the necessary infrastructure and support services are available and efficiently managed to serve the faculty, programs and community organizations utilizing the Health Science Center.

Membership

Each LMHSC "founding partner" institution that contributes more than 5% of the operating expenses of the Health Science Center is entitled to three representatives on the HSC Management Group. The HSC Management Group will elect a President, Vice Chair and a recorder from its membership, determine an appropriate meeting time, meet regularly as needed and document meetings with minutes.

All terms will be three (3) year rotating terms. It is understood that due to personnel changes etc. this may not always be feasible. Designated LMHSC staff will serve as ex-officio members and assist the Group's officers.

Breakdown of the representatives shall be allocated as follows for each 5% or more partner:

  • Two (2) representatives housed from within the HSC

  • One (1) representative off-site

The rationale for rotating terms, along with three (3) representatives from each 5% or more partners, is to ensure well informed and experienced individuals are groomed and available to lead the committee.

Any recommended changes in the breakdown of HSC Management Group representation will be forwarded to the LMSHC Board of Directors for approval.
