Child and Family Studies has a faculty composed of talented researchers, teachers, and professionals who provide service to children, youth, and families. Faculty come from varied educational backgrounds, including child development, clinical, educational and developmental psychology, early childhood education, family studies, human development, sociology, and cultural anthropology. This variety of backgrounds reflects the belief that the pursuit and dissemination of knowledge should be interdisciplinary in nature and conducted with sensitivity to issues of personal, economic, cultural, ethnic, racial, religious, and political diversity. Given this, our faculty offer many opportunities to become involved in research and/or outreach on children, youth, and families.
