Our multidisciplinary faculty are involved in cutting-edge research related to best practices and behavioral health policies. The fully-online Master of Science Degree in Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health (CABH) program benefits from the faculty's interdisciplinary behavioral health research, evaluation, training, and community-based demonstration projects. Additional benefit comes from faculty involvement in a range of community and policy settings (i.e., public and private child welfare settings, clinics, mental health and substance abuse treatment facilities, residential settings, juvenile justice programs, schools, and others).

Faculty are active in service to the university, community, and to their professions, including departmental and college committees, appointments to national, state, and local level advisory boards, invitations to give keynote presentations, and elections to leadership positions in professional associations.
