Tim Rarick is a faculty member in the Department of Home and Family at BYU-Idaho. He has taught courses at Kansas State University and BYU-Idaho such as Lifespan Human Development, Parent Education, and Child and Family Advocacy to name a few. Rarick has conducted research studies with emerging adults (18-25 year olds) regarding their life-goal pursuits, subjective wellbeing, and views on marriage and family.

He has spoken at conferences in China and the United States regarding children and families. Rarick earned a master's and doctorate degree in Marriage, Family, & Human Development from Kansas State University.
