The Center for Children and Families (CCF) is a university-level resource center for education and information about children and families.

  • Our Vision is to be a nationally recognized, interdisciplinary resource center for education and for best practices information about children and families across the lifespan.
  • Our Mission is to foster collaborative research, grant proposal-writing, and experiential student learning to improve the quality of life for children and families. The Center provides consultation and support for faculty members and community practitioners to write interdisciplinary grant proposals and to manage grants. The grants offer learning opportunities for university students as well as research opportunities for faculty members and practitioners. Center activities promote comprehensive, collaborative services for children and families across the lifespan.
