Faculty Research

We share common aspirations to enhance research that has measurable community and social justice impact, and that meaningfully engages the communities and vulnerable populations whose well-being our research strives to improve. Given the University of Illinois prominence as one of the greatest information and technology research universities in the world, we likewise value our opportunity to be national leaders in bringing new technologies to social work research and interventions.
