The Elizabeth Wisner Social Welfare Center for Families and Children is a community-based research center within the School of Social Work at the Tulane University. The Wisner Center primarily supports research projects that examine the causes and consequences of intimate partner violence, promote the development of new frameworks for understanding family violence, and utilize findings from research to inform interventions directed at reducing violence in families and communities. This article describes the history, structure, and funding resources of the Wisner Center and offers an overview of affiliated research projects and publications. Finally, this article illustrates the vital role of the Wisner Center in promoting the research agendas of junior faculty competing for funding within the Tulane University's decentralized management center model.
