About Us

Our highly ranked program has a proud history of studying family life and human development. Today our research, outreach, and educational pursuits address contemporary social issues that affect children, youth, adults, and families through quality research, teaching, and outreach programs.

Students have the opportunity to learn from award-winning faculty through out-of-classroom experiences at our Family Resiliency Center, Child Development Laboratory and with our Child Care Resource Service and The Autism Project.
