Faculty in the College of Behavioral and Community Sciences conduct research to improve the quality of life, health, and safety of diverse populations and to promote positive change in individuals, groups, communities, organizations and systems. The research goal of the college is to bridge the gap between science and practice with community-centered models. Thus, our research is often characterized by multidisciplinary approaches and active engagement with community partners.

In 2012, our faculty had 386 publications in peer-reviewed journals. In addition, they made 460 presentations at regional, national, and international conferences.
