The Initiative for Child and Family Studies draws on the expertise of faculty at Roosevelt University who have scholarly interests in children’s well-being to:
* Encourage students to learn about child development from an interdisciplinary perspective in our undergraduate concentration program, and to develop expertise providing clinical services to children and families in our graduate concentration program.
* Promote efforts to improve the lives of children by facilitating volunteer work, transformational service-learning, and advocacy.
* Deepen the connection between the University and our community by sharing information pertaining to children’s well-being.
The work of the Initiative reflects Roosevelt University’s historic commitment to social justice and its mission to serve as an intellectual resource to the community.
