Gottfredson, VCU?s provost and vice president for academic affairs. The VCU center, newly named the VCU Clark-Hill Institute for Positive Youth Development, will provide a basis for extending current efforts in the areas of youth violence research and community engagement. Faculty and researchers from the VCU Center for Promotion of Positive Youth Development and the VCU Center for the Study and Prevention of Youth Violence will be working together to develop and implement community response plans and to evaluate strategies for preventing youth violence.?Given the highly competitive nature of the selection process, the CDC?s selection of VCU represents a strong endorsement of the collaborations that have been established between VCU and the community,? said Albert D.
