The New Dad Research Series

The New Dad Research Series examines the evolving roles and attitudes of working fathers. Over the past decade, the series, led by Professor Brad Harrington, has captured the experiences and perspectives of over 3,000 fathers on such topics as the transition to fatherhood, paternity leave, at-home dads, and millennial fathers.
