History - The Gesell Name

The Gesell Institute bears the name of Arnold Gesell (1880-1961), noted pioneer in the study of child development. Gesell was a native of Alma, Wis., and graduated from the Stevens Point Normal School in 1899. He later earned doctorates in both psychology and medicine. Gesell founded The Yale Clinic of Child Development. The Gesell Institute has been in operation at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, since 1972.

The Gesell Institute exists as a vital component in the School of Education at UW-Stevens Point. Each year approximately 100 undergraduate and graduate students receive laboratory experiences working with young children and their parents within this facility.
