The Seton Center for Community and Population Health (SCCPH) was established in 2004 as an academic resource for collaboration, learning and research to enhance the quality of life for individuals and communities in need. The SCCPH is located in the Department of Interprofessional Health Sciences and Health Administration in the School of Health and Medical Sciences and provides technical assistance to community health agencies focused on improving the health status of New Jersey residents.
The SCCPH follows a partnership approach that facilitates linkages with community stakeholders, healthcare providers and graduate students. Since its inception, the SCCPH has collaborated with eight different community agencies and involved graduate students from the Master of Healthcare Administration (M.H.A.) and other health-related graduate programs at Seton Hall. The Center has successfully developed and completed strategic plans, marketing frameworks, agency needs assessments and community program evaluations. The SCCPH serves as an academic link and resource to local and regional non-profit health-service agencies
