The Administrative Core functions as a cohesive unit between UMass Boston and DF/HCC. The core provides day-to-day oversight of the Partnership trajectory; coordination between UMass Boston and DF/HCC Project Investigators, Core Directors, and IAC members; and regular reporting to NIH.

The Administrative Core oversees all internal and external communication about upcoming activities and events. The monthly newsletter, the Partnership Post, is distributed by the core to reach faculty, students, and administrators across UMass Boston and DF/HCC.
