Dear Friends,

At SESP, where we work to make lives better, our motto is one individual, one family, one organization, and one policy at a time. And our faculty and graduates are at the forefront of scientific discovery and translation to make that happen.

Take, for example, the work of Claudia Haase, assistant professor of human development and social policy, which is featured on the cover. Claudia is devoted to unlocking the keys to success and well-being for children, older adults, and everyone in between. She’s delving into the important role emotions play in mental and physical health. And she’s taking this science to action by discovering ways to evoke emotions that help us thrive. All the while, she welcomes Northwestern students into her classroom and lab to join in on the discovery process.
