The Schubert Center for Child Studies enjoyed another year engaging in dialogue, providing education, overseeing research, and influencing policy for the improvement of child well-being. We explored the “Impact of Inequalities on Childhood” through our conversation series and additional lectures; organized another cohort of undergraduate students to learn about federal policy in D.C.; oversaw the completion of a community-based research project; and assisted in the incorporation of developmentally-informed policies. We welcome you to explore our interactive annual report, describing our activities throughout the year, and encourage you to visit our website for more information. Read the full annual report here.

The Schubert Center for Child Studies at Case Western Reserve University is committed to the well-being of all children and young people, and to promoting an equitable environment in which all children can thrive regardless of their country of origin, race, gender, or religion.
Far too often in human history the world has stood by as one group or another was singled out and deprived of their rights, dignity, well-being, and even survival. This has never been a proud moment for humanity. We deplore all policies and actions that threaten the well-being of children and young people, their families and communities and promote injustice and discrimination.
We stand firmly with immigrant and refugee children and their families and communities.
