      >
      > I am writing to ask you to share this information with outstanding
      > students or colleagues who might be interested in opportunities for
      > doctoral training in behavioral science and community health and
      > development. Our KU Work Group has a 25-year tradition of graduate
      > training within the Department of Human Development at the University of
      > Kansas. Its mission is to promote community health and development through
      > collaborative research, teaching, and service.
      >
      > Our KU Work Group's Vision is:
      > * People working together to learn and make a difference
      > * A talented, committed, multi-generational, and interdisciplinary
      > team of behavioral scientists and community practitioners
      > * Learning with and building capacity among those we serve
      > * Working with strategic partners engaged in social change at local,
      > national, and global levels
      >
      > We are a multi-disciplinary team--backgrounds include advanced training
      > and experience in behavioral science, public health, anthropology,
      > community psychology, public administration, and community development.
      > Our team is also multi-generational--its 20+ members include professional
      > staff with doctoral or master's degrees, pre-doctoral students,
      > undergraduate interns/fellows, and support staff.
      >
      > Currently, there are opportunities to learn and contribute with community
      > and national initiatives in three practice domains:
      > a) Community and public health (e.g., preventing adolescent pregnancy;
      > access and disparities in health; improving the public health
      > infrastructure)
      > b) Child and youth development (e.g., community development for healthy
      > children; state systems for youth development)
      > c) Urban community development (e.g., neighborhood initiatives in
      > metropolitan Kansas City)
      >
      > Through mentoring and coursework, we develop professional competence and
      > advanced leadership in:
      > a) Applied research (e.g., evaluating community initiatives;
      > intervention research)
      > b) Teaching/learning (e.g., about behavioral science and community
      > health and development; E-Learning)
      > c) Consultation (e.g., with state and community organizations; with
      > grantmakers)
      >
      > Contingent on available funding, financial support for pre-doctoral
      > students is typically available (often, as a 75% time Graduate Research
      > Assistantship with tuition support). An emerging joint degree program--a
      > Ph.D. (in Human Development) and M.P.H. (Master's in Public Health, KU
      > Medical Center)--may be appropriate for some students. Although admission
      > deadlines are flexible, the preferred deadline for applications for Fall,
      > 2002 admission to the doctoral program is February 1, 2002.
