Purpose of the Meeting: The purpose of the meeting is to review the operations of USU, particularly the academic affairs, and provide advice to the USU President and the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs (who represents the Secretary of Defense).

Edward Hébert School of Medicine will provide academic updates to include initiatives and collaborations; the Daniel K. Inouye Graduate School of Nursing will present an update on academic activities and collaborations; and the Postgraduate Dental College will provide an update on academic activities.
