Our Education Mission
The Child Maltreatment Solutions Network Education mission is to train and educate the next generation of scientists and practitioners in the fields of child maltreatment, child welfare, and child advocacy. We provide interdisciplinary graduate and undergraduate training opportunities that address the unique and unmet need for higher education degrees and specialization in child maltreatment. We also facilitate educational support for Penn State students who have been involved in the foster care system. Finally, we conduct outreach to raise awareness and educate the broader community about the causes, consequences, and prevention of child maltreatment.
