For more than 50 years, the UNC Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute has worked to promote positive developmental and educational outcomes for children of all backgrounds and abilities from the earliest years. We are dedicated to conducting rigorous, interdisciplinary research; informing public policy and supporting systems change; and improving the lives of vulnerable children through evidence-based practice. We need partners as we build toward a future where every child has equal opportunity for health, safety, and happiness. Join us as we work to develop programs and initiatives that improve the lives of children and families in our state, nation, and beyond.
