In June 2014, the Middle States Commission on Higher Education Review Board re-accredited Thomas Jefferson University and in their report they made sure to highlight the exemplar work being done by the Jefferson Center for InterProfessional Education (JCIPE). JCIPE, founded in 2007, was commended by the accreditation committee for its work during the committee’s most recent visit to Philadelphia in June 2014.
To help foster the mission of JCIPE, the Jefferson Digital Commons has partnered to archive the JCIPE eNewsletter. Archiving the newsletter has allowed JCIPE to continue promoting their mission to an international community and has allowed the international community to access interprofessional education and practice work being done at Thomas Jefferson University and beyond. This partnership is helping to perpetuate interprofessional ideals and competencies around the globe.
The Jefferson Digital Commons is an open-access institutional repository maintained by the Center for Teaching and Learning and the Scott Memorial Library at Thomas Jefferson University. At the time of publication, the JDC had over 10,859 assets and over 2,717,344 downloads.
To date, all issues of the JCIPE newsletter have been archived and made open access to a global audience searching the Jefferson Digital Commons.
