    Webinar: Early Childhood Policy: New Developments in Higher Education 

    Thursday, May 19 

    1:00-2:00pm Eastern 

    Interested in developing an Early Childhood Policy (ECP) program at your university? Join the University-Based Child and Family Policy Consortium and the Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD) for a webinar that will describe the Early Childhood Policy in Institutions of Higher Education (ECPIHE) initiative being led by the National Center for Children & Families at Columbia University.  

    The ECIPHE initiative aims to prepare students for leadership and policymaking roles in Early Childhood Policy (ECP) and establish a new field of inquiry in Early Childhood Policy. As part of this work, the initiative has created open access materials that provide a "blueprint" for creating new ECP undergraduate and graduate degree programs and certificates, as well as technical assistance supports. ECPIHE guides its work with an intentional eye towards equity and diversity; it seeks to engage diverse professionals and students, and equip future ECP leaders with knowledge about, and respect for, the diverse families that early childhood policies serve. 

    This webinar will introduce participants to the ECPIHE initiative and available resources. This webinar is open to all and is geared towards higher education faculty and students. The webinar will conclude with an audience Q&A period.
