USA: Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research, Cornell University
The creation of the BCTR in 2011 represents a consolidation and expansion of programs and resources previously housed in the Family Life Development Center and the Bronfenbrenner Life Course Center.
The Center will foster research to understand and discover solutions to human problems across multiple levels of analysis (individual, interpersonal, community, organizational, governmental), as well as to identify, evaluate, and disseminate evidence-based and cost-efficient practices and programs. The BCTR will also focus on research that informs policy issues and debates. Further, the Center will engage stakeholders at the local, state, and national levels in more effective partnerships with CHE researchers. In these efforts, the Center responds to the call in the University Strategic Plan to “strongly connect extension and outreach to on-campus research and educational strengths.”
