The Schubert Center for Child Studies at Case Western Reserve University celebrates its 20th anniversary with a day-long conference on April 27, Cleveland: A Community Committed to Our Children. Members of the university and broader Cleveland community will be sharing their work addressing the question: “How do we make environments effective and equitable for all our children?”
The City Club of Cleveland is co-hosting the lunch session, the second annual Kessler-Freedheim Lecture in honor of CWRU emeriti faculty Dr. Jane Kessler (GRS ’51, psychology), founder of the Mental Development Center and Dr. Donald Freedheim, the founding director of the Schubert Center. There will be panels covering topics including the arts, early childhood, education, health, neighborhoods and communities, and relationships with more than 35 presenters from throughout the Greater Cleveland Community, including newly-released videos and performances.
“We are thrilled to use this convening as an opportunity to shine a light on the home-grown talents and expertise of our many community partners,” says Jill Korbin, director of the Schubert Center. “We expect this to be a day of learning and inspiration as we tackle the challenges our children and young people face.”
Sponsors for the day include the Cleveland Foundation, The George Gund Foundation, The St. Luke’s Foundation, United Way, Ideastream, Dr. Jane Kessler, and Drs. Donald and Gerda Freedheim.
Please note: The conference is fully subscribed and has a wait list.
