CENTER FOR THE SCIENCE OF COMMUNITY WELL-BEING
The Center for the Science of Community Well-Being (CSCW) is a collaborative effort headed by the School of Education, University of Miami in conjunction with the the Schools of Architecture, Business Administration, Communication, Law, Marine and Atmospheric Science, Medicine, Music, Nursing and Health Studies, and the Colleges of Arts and Sciences and Engineering.
The Center, and its primary sponsor the School of Education, is committed to promoting individual, interpersonal, institutional, and community well-being. We do this by studying the educational, psychological, physical, and social determinants of well-being, by training leaders in these areas, and by building capacity in the community for risk prevention and transformational practices. We embrace a systemic view of well-being, in which the personal well-being of our students, trainees, staff, faculty, patients, alumni and community partners is inextricably linked to the health of our relationships, organizations, neighborhoods, civic society, built environment, and natural ecology.
This web site is intended to provide a resource and portal to not only our various activities, but to research and practice in the field of community well-being. It is our purpose to establish an international clearing house where individual interested in issues of interpersonal, institutional and community well-being can come and gain access to information, experts and participate in the exchange of ideas and innovations.
