The Northwestern University Two-Generation Research Initiative
The Northwestern University Two-Generation Research Initiative (NU2Gen) is co-led by IPR developmental psychologist Lindsay Chase-Lansdale and IPR research associate professor Teresa Eckrich Sommer. NU2Gen develops and evaluates programs which strategically align early childhood education services for children with workforce training for their parents. Two-generation education programs aim to promote child development and school readiness/achievement; parent education, employment, and earnings; and family economic and social mobility.
This initiative began over a decade ago and has influenced program and policy design across the nation to advance family wellbeing and prosperity for parents and their young children.
