Launched in 2003, the G. Mildred and A. Foster Scott Lecture Series is an externally funded program that brings a diverse range of speakers to the GSSWSR. Reflecting the mission of the Center, speakers in the Scott Lecture Series address issues relevant to practice, policy and research in the broad area of child and family well-being. Past topics have included intergenerational family violence, developmental consequences of homelessness and bullying of LGBTQ youth. The Scott Lecture Series open to the public and provides valuable opportunities for students to meet peers, faculty members and community based professionals who share common interests in the wellbeing of children and families.
