On September 21, 2011, the College of Human Ecology (CHE) celebrated the opening of the BCTR with an Inaugural Reception and Dinner in the newly-opened Human Ecology Building. Center staff, college faculty, members of The Bronfenbrenner family, alumni, and invited guests were in attendance. The evening included a viewing of the inaugural video and an informal panel conversation between former Urie Bronfenbrenner students, Nan Crouter (’82), Jim Garbarino (’73), and David Olds (’76). In his opening remarks, CHE Dean Alan Mathios noted,

The breadth and depth of all of the extension and outreach programs now united as the Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research connect research to communities at critical junctures of the life course – from maternal and child health to the challenges of later life – with the aim to move research to the field more quickly than ever. Combining the expertise of the Bronfenbrenner Life Course Center and the Family Life Development Center provides a clear focal point around which we can build many more links that connect successful research at Cornell with the stores of existing data and research, years of experience working in communities and innovative approaches to applying research to real-world problems.
