Consortium

The Consortium brings together researchers and practitioners focused on understanding the causes of youth violence and recommended prevention strategies. Consortium members are involved in the design, implementation, evaluation, and dissemination of prevention programs at the individual, family, school, and community level. We believe this is best accomplished through the creation of an interdisciplinary team from both universities and community agencies. Our university team members come from UC Riverside as well as five other universities in southern California—UCLA, UC Santa Barbara, UC Irvine, UC San Diego, and USC. They represent a range of disciplines including education, psychology, sociology, criminology, law, and medicine. The consortium also includes faculty from the Human Interaction Research Institute (HIRI) and Latino Health Access (LHA), our primary community partner. Please feel free to contact consortium members directly if you have questions related to their work.
