About the Workshop on Human Potential

The Workshop on Human Potential is one of the core intellectual activities of the Center for Human Potential and Public Policy. It is an interdisciplinary forum for graduate students, post docs, and faculty whose work concerns behavior, health, and well-being across the lifespan and the ways in which technology and public policy shape human potential and achievement. The workshop has active members in the areas of the social, behavioral, health, and policy sciences.

The Workshop on Human Potential alternates between two types of sessions. Not only do we regularly invite outside speakers for a traditional “workshop” presentation, but we also provide a forum for faculty, post-doctoral fellows, and graduate students to present research-in-progress in order to receive critical and constructive feedback.
