Center for Children and Families Across Cultures

CFAC faculty and students

Our Mission

The Center for Children and Families Across Cultures (CFAC) is the first center designed to foster research, outreach, and training activities that further our understanding of children and families from different cultures. The center will be a venue for multidisciplinary, collaborative efforts that bring together interested scholars focused on studying children and families of diverse backgrounds within the U.S. and across nations. A central tenet of CFAC is a strengths-based, positive development approach to developing models, conducting research, and providing outreach that benefit such populations.
