About

Giving Day contributions of every size make a major difference! Help the Merrill Palmer Skillman Institute for Child and Family Development stay on the cutting edge as it works to train generations of parents, teachers, students and researchers in issues related to infants, children, and adolescents.

Merrill Palmer Skillman Institute

Our research is centered on broad themes that reflect wide-ranging factors affecting development, with a lifespan perspective, often utilizing multidisciplinary designs and methods, and a committed urban mission.

Since the Merrill Palmer Skillman Institute's (MPSI) founding in 1920, community engagement has been an integral and important part of its mission and activities. This engagement includes outreach programs for parents and grandparents, children and teens, and the professionals dedicated to serving them. MPSI's community outreach and engagement programs have a tremendous reach throughout Detroit and Southeastern Michigan.
