Center for Families

About The Center

Founded in 1994, the Center for Families at Purdue University is a concrete reminder that families, in all their diverse forms, are the foundation of society.

The center used to be no more than a lofty dream shared by a few creative and dedicated individuals. Today, the center's work touches the lives of thousands of families in new ways. State and local policymakers come together to learn about new research on families and children. Employers learn about ways to help their employees do a good job, both at home and at work.

The center draws faculty, staff, and students into new outreach efforts and brings new resources to the College of Health and Human Sciences.

The Center for Families provides a way for faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends of HHS to bring about change focused on families, an issue about which they are deeply passionate, and a change that is even more lasting than bricks and mortar. These caring partners have both extended and focused the efforts of the school and created possibilities for collaborations seldom imagined in the past.
