Message From the Dean

Craig J. Newschaffer Raymond E. and Erin Stuart Schultz Dean Professor of Biobehavioral Health

February 25 2020:

The Methodology Center has been a force for innovation and rigor in research methods for social, behavioral and health research for a quarter of a century, thriving under the inspired leadership of Dr. Linda Collins.  As many of you know, Linda will be leaving Penn State in the fall of 2020 to assume her new role as Professor of Social and Behavioral Sciences in the School of Global Public Health at New York University in order to focus on her work in intervention optimization. We at Penn State thank Linda for her contributions and wish her well – her letter to the community announcing this change can be found here.  In the meantime, the College of Health and Human Development remains fully committed to the development of innovative study design and analysis methods that support cutting edge science on human health and development.  The Methodology Center will continue to be integral to this part of our mission.  Please stay tuned to this website for further announcements about the next chapter in the Methodology Center’s storied history.
