2014 Regents Professor
Ann S. Masten
Regents Professor Ann Masten works tirelessly to help children adapt to adverse circumstances.
Masten collaborates with local schools and community organizations in the Twin Cities, as well as University students and faculty colleagues in research on children who have experienced homelessness, war, and other adversity.
Among the insights she has gained in nearly 30 years of studying children facing adversity is that the ability to pull through isn’t the province of a special few. Rather, it’s what she calls “ordinary magic”: the blossoming of common human adaptive systems—aided, often, by relationships and resources—into the phenomenon of resilience.
A shining star in the University’s highly ranked Institute of Child Development, Masten has devoted her life to discovering ways to help children grow into stable, productive adults and has led scholarship in the field.
