IPE Curriculum Committee

The IPE Curriculum Committee is the central steering committee for IPE at UNMC. Membership consists of at least two members from each college or school, and a student representative.

The committee meets monthly, and receives input from the Student subcommittees. It is responsible for the design and implementation of the spring and fall campus IPE days, which serve to introduce IPE to first-year students from all colleges. In addition, the IPE Curriculum Committee is also responsible for the development of new IPE initiatives, review of current initiatives, and overall direction of UNMC's IPE program.
