This paper symposium, titled Evidence-Based Innovations Addressing Diverse Populations and Contexts: Advancing Family Science Teaching, Administration, and Community Practice, is well-suited for the 2018 conference theme focused on families and cultural intersections in global context. Each paper focuses on different aspects of diversity: diversity of nation of origin; sexuality; family form, structure, and function; ability. Each address the issue of diversity from varied research perspectives, some initiated by the presenters themselves, and connects family science scholarship with the promotion of individual, family, campus, and community well-being and resilience. After presenting the various scholarship of each author, attention will shift to research implications for skills necessary for students, scholars, faculty, and administrators to best meet the needs of diverse contemporary family and community contexts.
At the conclusion of this paper symposium, attendees will be able to:Explain the use of empirical data in the creation and implementation of innovations in teaching, researching, advocating, and collaborating with community partners across diverse populations.Compare and contrast application of research in the development of new teaching, research, advocacy, and collaboration techniques with diverse populations.Evaluate the effective of one’s own implementation of the strategies described in the symposium as scholars, faculty, administrators, and/or community practitioners.
