The Rudd Adoption Research Program is located within the University of Massachusetts Amherst Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences. Our mission is to advance knowledge about the psychology of adoption through original research; mentor the next generation of adoption-competent researchers; engage with community partners to incubate and evaluate innovative programs that have potential for national impact; and provide research-based information to influence practice and policy at agency, state, federal, and international levels.
