Violence prevention research and outreach at Tulane University traverses the spectrum of harm, from interpersonal to societal. Faculty and staff from multiple disciplines explore root causes, negative outcomes, and prevention approaches. They work across the life-span, from infant mental health to elder abuse prevention, and with multiple populations, including Black youth, Indigenous women, queer and transgender individuals, and more. 


Projects in violence prevention include federally funded centers of excellence, fellowship programs for public health graduate students, data analysis for policy recommendations, and several other programs and outreach that directly connect with community leaders.
