Research & Evaluation
The Center for Advanced Studies in Child Welfare (CASCW) supports research and evaluation in several ways. As the home of the Minn-LInK Project, CASCW offers the opportunity for researchers to access state administrative data from multiple agencies to answer questions about the impacts of policies, programs, and practice on the well being of children in Minnesota. In addition, CASCW disseminates information from research undertaken by faculty and graduate students at the University of Minnesota School of Social Work.
