Description: The Tribal Early Childhood Research Center (TRC) is a partnership between researchers and American Indian and Alaska Native communities, programs, and practitioners to advance our understanding of young children's development within the context of American Indian and Alaska Native families, early care and education programs, and communities through research. TRC activities include pilot research, training, and a semi-annual conference on child development research and evaluation with American Indian and Alaska Native communities. The TRC relies on a Steering Committee and Communities of Learning that include researchers, American Indian and Alaska Native community and program partners, and federal partners to guide its efforts. The TRC is based out of the University of Colorado Denver, Colorado School of Public Health, Centers for American Indian and Alaska Native Health and includes research partners at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health - Center for American Indian Health, Michigan State University - Office of University Outreach and Engagement, and the Brazelton Touchpoints Center at Harvard Medical School. The TRC is funded by a grant from the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation.
