Preparing future scholars
Our program faculty have backgrounds in applied mental health research (community, clinical, social), and our teaching faculty members span disciplines including in human development, public administration, social work, student affairs, nursing and psychology.
All core and affiliated faculty conduct a variety of interdisciplinary research and work. Faculty members are actively involved with many different University interprofessional organizations (e.g., the Institute for Genocide and Mass Atrocities Prevention; Institute for Justice and Well-Being; Transdisciplinary Areas of Excellence; University Community Schools). They edit and contribute to nationally- and internationally-recognized scholarly journals.
Doctoral students are encouraged to collaborate with faculty through courses, research and dissertation work, consulting projects and other endeavors.
