Harrell Center

Working together to end Family Violence

The Harrell Center was created through a private endowment by The Harrell Family. Located at the USF College of Public Health, the Center is designed to conduct and translate research into usable information for practitioners, to provide education and training, and serve as a resource and advocacy center for the public and professionals.

The Center provides an education site for students and involves an interdisciplinary faculty from public health, social work, mental health, aging, and other fields.

Our Mission

To develop and integrate knowledge with best practices in order to strengthen community responses to family violence. The Harrell Center serves as an intermediary between research and practice.

Violence hurts our families, our lives, our world

The Harrell Center exists because family violence impacts all of us. We cannot solve this problem unless we understand the nature of it. The Harrell Center seeks to end family violence by understanding it.
