The Schubert Center for Child Studies (“Schubert Center”) is an interdisciplinary center with an emphasis on translating academic research to real time policy making and impact on children. The Schubert Center convenes, facilitates, contributes to and in many cases leads community efforts to promote child well-being. The Schubert Center promotes and brings visibility to research, practice, policy and education activities and outcomes on behalf of children – work that would otherwise remain largely in silos.
The time is right for the Schubert Center to maximize the opportunity ahead. In the next 4 years the Schubert Center will: 1) Promote a culture of child-first on campus; 2) Build the platform to showcase the excellence of CWRU on behalf of children; 3) Shape policy to advance child well-being; 4) Spotlight issues to inform research and/or policy; 5) Strengthen organizational health.
