Institute for Family and Social Responsibility


The Institute for Family and Social Responsibility is a joint effort of the School of Public and Environmental Affairs and the School of Social Work, with a primary focus on social policy research and outreach activities. The Institute's mission is to bring together the resources of citizens, governments, communities and Indiana University to better the lives of children and families. Ongoing research projects examine the impacts of welfare reforms, the adequacy of child support guidelines, community responses to the Temporary Assistance to Needy Families legislation, and AIDS education for incarcerated youth. The Institute serves as the National Child Support Enforcement Research Clearinghouse. It also administers a university-wide competitive student internship program in collaboration with the Indiana Family Social Service Administration.
