The purpose of the University of San Francisco Committee on Children and Youth (CCY), established in the spring of 2002, is to educate faculty, staff, students, and the surrounding community about issues that are important to children and adolescents locally and globally.
(a) each year, the CCY will identify, develop, and implement a minimum of one campus colloquium focused on an issue important to children and youth;
(b) the CCY will sponsor development of courses which focus on children and youth and promote the inclusion of content regarding children and youth into existing courses; and,
(c) the CCY will collaborate with faculty, staff, students, and community members on activities related to children and youth and will serve as a consulting and referral body regarding relevant issues.
The CCY is composed of an interdisciplinary group of faculty with representation across USF’s schools and colleges, each of whom typically serves a three-year term.
