Partnerships in Prevention Science Institute (PPSI) envisions prevention science that promotes capable and healthy youth, adults, families, and communities, contributing to legacies of well-being across generations. Central to this vision is the land grant university ideal of science with practice, fostered by a culture of collaboration and public health innovation. We are realizing this vision through a network of partnerships with communities and schools that aims to advance the science and practice of positive human development.
PPSI’s mission is to conduct innovative research promoting capable and healthy youth, adults, families, and communities—through partnerships that integrate science with practice.
