The Center for Child and Family Policy informs students, policymakers and practitioners about current research in child and family policy by hosting and facilitating conversations and sharing research findings to improve policies and practices that impact children and families.
One of the ways CCFP does this is by bringing world-renowned experts who have demonstrated unrivaled excellence in behavioral science and theory, as well as science-to-policy applications. These lectures are free and open to the public and are now offered online so anyone can participate. Check our upcoming events for more details. Information on past events, including videos and blog summaries, can be seen here.

CCFP supports and encourages student engagement through a variety of opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to engage in research, study child and family policy through course offerings, network with professionals working in the field, and attending our events.
