Research, training, technical assistance, direct services and leadership

Most of the easy problems in the behavioral and biological sciences have been solved. Today the important problems are increasingly found and solved at the intersection of many disciplines. The Life Span Institute stands at such a convergence. At the Life Span Institute we know that our mission—to discover knowledge about human health and development—can only be achieved by problem-driven collaborations across many disciplines.

The Life Span Institute’s 13 centers and Peruvian affiliate currently have more than 100 active programs and projects that constitute basic and translational research, training, direct services, consultation and technical assistance.

Life Span Institute affiliated scientists are recognized not only by competitive funding, but by their academic peers and constituent professional groups with honors and awards each year. They serve in administrative leadership positions at the university and in their fields. They are also called on to testify and consult on public policy issues. Several principal investigators consult with business and industry as well.

From the beginning of its “modern era” in 1956, the Life Span Institute (Schiefelbusch Institute for Life Span Studies) pioneered new understanding and approaches to intellectual and developmental disabilities and, later, to child development, language and hearing disorders and public health that have resulted in treatments and practices that have contributed to the great progress in the quality of life, community engagement, independence and education for people with and without disabilities. Truly, a national, if not world leader, the Life Span Institute, the largest and oldest of research institutes at the University of Kansas, continues to make history.
