Early Childhood, Youth, and Family Studies

In the Department of Early Childhood, Youth, and Family Studies, we focus on advancing early childhood education and healthy development in educational and home-based settings, training child life specialists who work in pediatric hospitals, and preparing students to work in family services agencies. Our vision is to be known for our unmatched expertise, accessibility, and impact through our preparation of outstanding, future professionals and through our service to Indiana families, schools, and communities

We work hard to attract and support highly-motivated students who desire to improve the lives of children and families. Many such students lack the resources to complete a college degree. We have accordingly prioritized our fundraising efforts toward the following:

Donations will be used to support diverse, dedicated students, some of whom might otherwise struggle to meet the financial demands of higher education. Donations will be divided between two micro-grants.

Please join our efforts to support the lives of children and families in our local community and beyond. Let’s work together to make a difference!

If you have a preference how your donation is used, please so indicate in the note option when making a donation.
