What CIR Does

The mission of the Center for Innovation and Research on Veterans & Military Families (CIR) at the USC School of Social Work is to strengthen the support network of veterans and military families.

Through education and training, innovation, research and partnerships, CIR bridges the gap between military and civilian communities. The center guides behavioral health practitioners, develops new technologies, informs policymakers, builds community networks and produces research with real-world applications.
