Assistant Professor Alaina Brenick, faculty adviser, and the students of the UCCFR received a 2017 National Council on Family Relations (NCFR) Affiliate Councils Affiliate Grant in support of their programing for the International Day of Families, to be observed on May 15th. The 2018 focus will be on Family Equality and the role of diverse families and family-oriented policies in promoting education and overall well-being of their members. Particularly, the Day’s focus is to raise awareness regarding the role of families in promoting early childhood education and lifelong learning opportunities for children and youth. This is a great opportunity for students, and demonstrates Alaina’s dedication to her role as faculty adviser. Congratulations all!
