CHHS Research


The College of Health and Human Services (CHHS) supports a broad portfolio of interdisciplinary research that seeks to improve the health, well-being, and quality of life for individuals and communities.

Our research addresses the many aspects of physical, emotional, behavioral, and social health and advances interventions, programs, and policies that tackle underlying social, economic, and environmental factors that contribute to health disparities.

Our research has global and local impacts, analyzes critical problems across the lifespan, and responds to the unique concerns and conditions of special populations. Our researchers have received competitive federal, state, local, philanthropic, and private industry funding.
