Shelley MacDermid Wadsworth began her career at Purdue two days after defending her dissertation at Penn State, where she earned an M.S. and Ph.D. in Human Development and Family Studies, and an MBA. The Purdue community has offered her tremendous opportunities for personal and professional growth, and today she's proud to be able to say that Purdue has been her academic home for more than two decades.
Her primary research interest is in the relationships between work conditions and family life. Over the past 20 years, she have studied differences between small and large workplaces, how adults grow and develop as a result of their work experiences, and how different kinds of organizational policies make it easier or more difficult for workers to be successful at work and at home. In 1996, she became the Director of the Center for Families (www.cfs.purdue.edu/cff), and in that role have the opportunity to conduct research and engagement activities focused on helping individuals and organizations who serve families to do their work more effectively. In 2000, her work added a new direction when she began to conduct research about and for military families via the Military Family Research Institute (www.mfri.purdue.edu).
Her research has been supported by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the Henry A. Murray Center, the Department of Defense, the state of Indiana, and the Lilly Endowment; and has earned awards from the Groves Conference and Gamma Sigma Delta. She's a recipient of the Work Life Legacy Award from the Families and Work Institute and serve as a faculty fellow to the Boston College Work-Family Roundtable. In 2005, she was named a fellow of the National Council on Family Relations. She serve on the editorial boards of several academic journals.
Since her first day as an undergraduate, she has spent my educational career at universities with a land grant mission, meaning that they were created with the goal of bringing campus and community together as they carry out their discovery, learning and engagement activities. This mission both exhilarates and challenges her. It is indescribably exciting to have the opportunity to participate in changing lives - the lives of students who are the first in their families to attend college or go to graduate school, or the lives of front-line practitioners who find useful help from the research world. She believes that 'doing' and 'teaching' are great ways to learn, so she try to involve student colleagues in every facet of my work, including design, budgeting, instrumentation, data collection, analyses and publication. Everyone on her team is expected to share their expertise with other team members. Most of her projects also involve collaborations with partners inside and outside of the university, which presents great opportunities to learn about collaboration and life in the "real world."
Areas of Expertise: Work and Family; military families; family stress; job flexibility; marital quality
