CRF is an interdisciplinary research center whose goals include creating networks and promoting dialogue among family researchers, policy leaders, community leaders, and students.
In order to accomplish this goal, CRF encourages experts in the field of family research to participate in CRF’s activities as a Scholar-in-Residence. Family researchers from other universities are welcome to come to UMass and CRF for a semester or an academic year. Each Scholar-in-Residence is selected based on his or her ability to productively engage with the community of faculty researchers active in the Center for Research on Families.
