Today’s social issues are more complex than ever, and policymakers at all levels seek and need rigorous research to help make key decisions that impact individuals, communities, states, and countries. The Center for Health and Social Policy (CHASP) at The University of Texas at Austin LBJ School of Public Affairs has a central mission – to reduce social and health disparities in the U.S. and abroad – and 5 areas of focus.
Each of our scholar affiliates specializes in distinct yet interrelated research areas. CHASP brings them together, with each other and other collaborators both on and off campus, to expand the knowledge-base, provide decision-makers with rigorous research, and increase potential social policy impacts.
CHASP affiliate fields of study include:
- social mobility
- public education
- criminal justice
- juvenile justice
- early childhood
- child welfare
- family supports
- adolescent health
- family structure
- food insecurity
- mental health
