The Center for Applied Research in Human Development

The Center for Applied Research in Human Development enables the development and application of interventions intended to improve quality of life for individuals, families, and communities. In particular, we aim to improve outcomes for sociodemographically marginalized populations by informing and evaluating interventions intended for public benefit.

The Center provides assistance to state and community-based agencies in the development, delivery, and evaluation of human service programs. This collaboration with state and community-based agencies is intended to facilitate the development of high quality program evaluations.

Moreover, the Center offers opportunities for graduate students to learn about the research and publication process under the mentorship and guidance of experts in the field of human development, family science, and applied research.

CARHD's Commitment to Diversity:

CARHD leadership is committed to reduce power imbalances and promoting antibias at personal, project, and institutional levels. To do so, CARHD leadership aims to provide a positive environment that encourages self-reflection and exploration of individual bias, beliefs, and intersectionalities, fosters cultural humility, and centers diverse voices and perspectives.

The Center is a joint venture of the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, Department of Human Development and Family Sciences, and the UConn Cooperative extension.
