Research, Education, and Partnerships
Currently, the CSC supports 5 interdisciplinary research initiatives, 25 major externally-funded research projects, 1 federally-funded graduate training program, and a professional training institute, creating a unique and vibrant interdisciplinary community committed to the shared mission of harnessing the power of developmental science to improve children’s lives.
Education and Training
The CSC also works in tandem with the Penn State Psychological Clinic to support professional development and promote the accessibility of empirically-supported best practices in the promotion of child and adolescent development, well-being and mental health intervention.
Collaborative community-university partnerships facilitate connections across the state, in particular via links with the Community and University Partnership at the Penn State York Campus and the Harrisburg Center for Healthy Child Development.
