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 interdisciplinary and collaborative research and grant writing activities for faculty by offering pre-award information, providing post-award support, and encouraging the use of experiential learning with students in research and grant activities. The Council for Interdisciplinary Research and Grants facilitates the work of the center.
