Why Family Science? A new article by NCFR President Norma J. Bond Burgess, Ph.D., answers this question, introducing the identity and impact of Family Science to brand new audiences of university administrators, faculty, federal policymakers, and more.

The article, published through the Consortium of Social Science Associations (COSSA) as part of its "Why Social Science?" initiative, shows several examples of Family Scientists' work and illustrates in lay terms how Family Science can empower all families to thrive.

COSSA, of which NCFR is a member, is "a nonprofit advocacy organization working to promote and advance the social and behavioral sciences in federal policymaking." In addition to distributing its "Why Social Science?" articles to its broad contact list, the articles are one of the "hallmark resources" COSSA uses when advocating to legislative and agency staff.
