Steering Committees

Tribal Early Childhood Research Center

TRC Steering Committees: The TRC consults with three Steering Committees of our key tribal early childhood partners in Head Start, Home Visiting, and Child Care. The Steering Committees are comprised of tribal program directors from across the country, as well as researchers whose work focuses on AIAN children’s development. The Steering Committees convene annually to provide guidance on the goals, activities, and progress of the TRC and to share their practice-based knowledge. Many Steering Committee members serve as members of the TRC Communities of Learning and Workgroups. Often, the Steering Committees convene at times and in places that allow Steering Committee members to attend research conferences, such as the Native Children’s Research Exchange and the ACF National Research Conference on Early Childhood in order to facilitate the sharing of knowledge from research to practice, and practice to research.

Recent and planned Steering Committee meetings are as follows:
September 9, 2015: Joint TRC Head Start, Home Visiting and Child Care Steering Committee meeting held in conjunction with the 2015 Native Children’s Research Exchange meeting in Aurora, CO.
