The university-wide Collaborative on Global Children's Issues launched in September 2021 to foster cross-disciplinary research and dialogue on critical and emerging challenges affecting children around the world, with a particular focus on children in adversity and pathways to resilience.

grounded in the lived experiences of children, their families, and communities;
responsive to current and emerging needs and useful to actors working in a variety of contexts and capacities to meet them;
evidence-informed and solutions-oriented; and
building effective bridges between stakeholders involved in practice, policy, and research.
