Associate Professor, Department of Psychology

All young people--regardless of race, ethnicity, social class, sexual orientation or gender identity--should have access to services and supports that enable their efforts to lead successful, productive lives. The research and professional practice of the Community-AID Lab, which Ignacio Acevedo founded and lead, promotes the use of data in developing, disseminating and improving sustainable preventive and positive development programs for all youth. Ignacio Acevedo is particularly interested in programs that support young people's efforts to improve their communities.
