About the Forum

As part of the Harris Visiting Scholar Program, we invite a key figure in the field of child development to address students, professionals, and the public on a topic of relevance to parents of young children and professionals working with young children and their families. The program is recognized for bringing highly regarded national figures in the infant-toddler field to Minnesota to share their latest research, practice, and policy work.

The Harris Forum is sponsored by the Irving B. Harris Foundation and by Irving Harris Programs in conjunction with the Center for Early Education and Development and the Institute of Child Development at the University of Minnesota. The forum is free to all attendees.

The 2015 Harris Forum is supported in part by grant #80888 awarded to the Center for Advanced Studies in Child Welfare, School of Social Work, at the University of Minnesota.
