T. Denny Sanford School of Social and Family Dynamics

Making a difference. The faculty of the T. Denny Sanford School of Social and Family Dynamics are at the cutting edge of their fields and are devoted to finding solutions to today's most difficult and important problems. The work of the school, however, is not focused entirely on problems.

We address the positive outcomes associated with development, families and social institutions. Understanding individual, family and social strengths and resilience is critical to promoting and improving well-being and health.

We build on our rich heritage and focus our diverse resources on interdisciplinary collaborations innovative action, and translation to impact our communities.
