The Center on the Developing Child's Student Seminar Series is designed to foster interdisciplinary dialogue among Harvard undergraduates and graduate students who are interested in promoting the healthy development of young children in the United States and abroad. The seminars will utilize a variety of formats, including discussions, presentations by guest experts, and activities. The seminars, held at the Center, will be on Wednesdays from 5:30 - 7:30 pm, and dinner is served.
The first session will be an orientation to the Center on September 10, 2012, from 4-5:30 pm, in the 4th Floor Atrium at 50 Church Street, Cambridge. The second session will feature Jack P. Shonkoff, M.D., the Center's director, on September 18, 2012, from 5:30-7:30 pm. This is a joint session with the Center's Doctoral Working Group. Visit the Center's Web site for a list of Student Seminar Series dates and topics.
Graduate and undergraduate students from all schools at Harvard University who are interested in leveraging knowledge to improve early childhood policy and practice are encouraged to participate.
While attendance at all seminars is not necessary, interested participants must a) complete a one-time registration for the series by Friday, September 14, 2012, and b) RSVP for the specific sessions of their choice prior to the date of the seminar. Because of room capacity, students will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis, so early responses are encouraged.
