Promoting social justice and community development by conducting applied, community-based and interdisciplinary research on the causes and prevention of violence, and by educating and training
Our faculty and staff regularly publish research findings and evaluation outcomes in peer-reviewed journals, book chapters, and magazines, and have published a number of whole books as well. One of our researchers even has their own blog, and another hosts their own podcast!
Local and national media outlets often seek out our researchers to discuss our research findings as it relates to current events or topics of interest. The Begun Center is regularly quoted or cited as experts on a number of topics related to violence prevention and mental/behavioral health.
