The Center for Education and Civil Rights and the Penn State Child Care Centers held an open Q&A forum for families and educators to continue work around race and diversity. Center administrators shared information about the new Commitment to Diversity Statement for Penn State Child Care Centers and associated objectives and professional development opportunities throughout the year. This brown-bag offered age-appropriate resources for attendees and plans for additional activities to continue to support this critical discussion.

This forum featured:

  • Holley Rochford, Director of Early Child Care Programs and Services
  • Dr. Allison Henward, Assistant Professor of Early Childhood Education
  • Dr. Erica Frankenberg, Associate Professor of Education and Demography
