Research That Matters

Research spotlight logo
As social work researchers, we partner with communities to examine a wide range of pressing social problems. In order to improve societal well-being—especially among those who are marginalized and disadvantaged—we seek to produce new knowledge, develop and evaluate interventions and programs, and shape policy through our research efforts. As part of this charge, we integrate our research findings into our teaching across the curriculum, and we mentor students in building their own research skills and expertise.

Faculty research centers on four core areas: Health and Aging, Marginalized Youth and Families, Sexual and Gender Minority Health, and Violence and Violence Prevention.
