Nebraska Center for Research on Children, Youth, Families and Schools
The mission of the Nebraska Center for Research on Children, Youth, Families and Schools is to improve, through cutting-edge interdisciplinary research, our understanding of optimal ways that parents, teachers and other service providers in family, school and community contexts can promote the intellectual, socio-emotional, physical and behavioral adjustment of children and youth. Central to all of this is enhancing our understanding of how these systems can work together to support the future of our nation. This paper presents the annual report of the Nebraska Center for Research on Children, Youth, Families and Schools. The Center has six objectives: (1) Facilitate the development of interdisciplinary collaborative research teams that can author joint publications and compete for large scale grants; (2) Increase grant production and competitiveness by providing support in proposal development, research methodology and grant administration; (3) Build capacity by recruiting new members, providing mentors to junior faculty, and training graduate students; (4) Expand research networks, disseminate research findings and increase visibility; (5) Offer opportunities for interaction with other researchers nationally and internationally; and (6) Provide outreach and conduct research that is relevant and essential to Nebraska's citizens and NU stakeholders. Outcomes to these objectives are presented. Research digests are appended. (Contains 4 tables.)
