Social Justice Related Research

The Center for Research on Families (CRF) has a deep commitment to social justice which is demonstrated through our core mission of advancing research for the health and well-being of all families. Our goal is that the faculty and student research that we support will inform policy and practices that will reduce and, ultimately, eliminate social, economic and health inequities. Our student and faculty scholars are studying topics across a broad range of areas that affect families. Many are looking at inequality in the lives of families that exist at the intersections of race, ethnicity, social class, gender, and abilities.
