About 20 faculty from across Lurie College and SJSU recently came together to discuss the Early Childhood Initiative, which has been conceptualized and led by faculty members Andrea Golloher (Special Education Department), Emily Slusser (Child and Adolescent Development Department) and Maria Fusaro (Child and Adolescent Development Department) and is intended to
- provide training and support for pre- and in-service early childhood practitioners;
- bridge the research-to-practice gap, advance research, and develop best practices; and
- support the professionalization of early childhood care and education.
We can’t wait to see where their ideas and passions take this initiative!
