The Institute for Families in Society was created in the early 1990s through the interdisciplinary efforts of a task force commissioned by the University of South Carolina. By 1992, the Institute was securely grounded by a generous donation from Cindy and Evan Nord. Working across disciplines and programs, the Institute has conducted research with a variety of partners to reduce child abuse, strengthen and engage families and communities, and improve the health of vulnerable populations.

The mission of the Institute is to use university-community interdisciplinary research and practice as a platform to advance the science of helping families and vulnerable populations.

Dr. Ana Lopez - DeFede

Dr. Ana Lòpez-De Fede has been named a recipient of the 2014 Breakthrough Leadership in Research Award. In its annoucement, the University's Office of Research noted that the recipients "not only excel in research in their respective fields, but also continuously go above and beyond their traditional academic responsibilities. They show exemplary leadership through interdisciplinary collaborations, mentoring junior faculty and reaching out to communities and diverse populations."

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Lòpez-De Fede in this prestigious and well-deserved recognition!
