The CYFC is a University-wide initiative that brings together more than 400 faculty, representing a range of disciplines (human development, the liberal arts, education, agriculture, and medicine), in efforts to promote collaborative research, outreach and teaching that address critical social issues facing children, youth, and families, and serve critical community needs.


The Prevention Research Center for the Promotion of Human Development (PRC) was established in 1997 with a focus on longitudinal, developmental research on risk. Research conducted in the Center examines how communities can work together with families, schools, community groups (social service, youth groups, the faith community), and industry to promote healthy lifestyles for children, youth, and families, and develops clinical trials of innovative models to promote competence and prevent maladaptive outcomes for children, families, and communities.
