The Office of Child Development (OCD) is a university-community partnership between the University of Pittsburgh and the city at large, dedicated to improving the lives of children, youth, and families. Through interdisciplinary collaborations across research, practice, and policy, we strive to turn knowledge into action and respond creatively and collaboratively to challenges facing children in Pittsburgh and around the world.

OCD facilitates and develops through mutually-beneficial partnerships with its constituencies new knowledge, services, and policies to improve the lives of children and families in five domains: interdisciplinary education and training; interdisciplinary research and scholarship; human service demonstration programs, networking, and strategic planning; program monitoring and evaluation; and needs assessments and policy studies.
