Ann S. Masten, Ph.D., Distinguished McKnight University Professor, Institute of Child Development, Fesler-Lampert Chair in Urban and Regional Affairs

Professor Masten, who has conducted research on children from homeless and highly mobile (HHM) families since 1989, will present findings from her ongoing collaborative and community-based research on risk and protective factors for school success in HHM children. District-level data on achievement for HHM compared with other school children will be presented to show the striking achievement gaps and individual differences in achievement among HHM students. Masten also will present findings on individual and family qualities that predict resilience in HHM children, and plans for new prevention research to promote resilience.
