Center for Prevention Science

The Center for Prevention Science was established in 2016 with a focus on community-level approaches to prevention. Our mission is to develop and disseminate knowledge through research that builds the capacity of community-based organizations to create changes in public policy or environmental conditions that cause social and health disparities.

The center has opened its doors to new opportunities and growth.Although much of the center's work has focused on substance abuse prevention, research in other areas of prevention has also been conducted (e.g., the prevention of sexual assault; child abuse and neglect). Research areas of the center include community organizing, substance abuse prevention, heath disparities, program evaluation, as well as empowerment theory and measurement.
