Updates from the Institute for Human Development and Well-Being


Published: 24Jul2020

The Institute for Human Development and Well-Being (IHDW) has been busy this summer as the world rapidly adapted to the ever-evolving COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the challenges that have arisen, the IHDW has taken on many positive and successful projects. 

The Institute's work addresses the role that leadership and policy-making can play in human development and well-being for individuals who:

  • Have physical, psychological and intellectual disabilities
  • Have experienced emotional, physiological and mental health issues
  • Belong to traditionally at-risk populations including those with low socioeconomic status, Indigenous peoples, and minorities

Dr. Shaheen Shariff, the Project Director of iMPACTS, is also a co-director of the IHDW. To learn more about the IDHW and its many projects from this summer, check out the Spring-Summer 2020 newsletter or visit the website for more information
