Center for Research on Families
The Center for Research on Families (CRF) actively supports and disseminates social and behavioral sciences research on issues relevant to families.
CRF is an interdisciplinary research center whose mission is to build a strong network of faculty with expertise in family research who are able to generate collaborative, multidisciplinary research projects and create unique programming that brings research to policy-makers and the public. As a basic unit of human and animal life, research on families at the Center encompasses disciplines including the life sciences, social sciences, public health and nursing, education, and natural resources. This rich mix of disciplines has been a key to faculty enthusiasm for the Center.
