Global Center for the Development of the Whole Child

Creating pathways out of adversity for the world's most vulnerable children.

​​​​​​​The Global Center for the Development of the Whole Child, based at the University of Notre Dame, collaborates with researchers and practitioners to ensure the wellbeing—physical, emotional, social, and cognitive—of children and adolescents in low-resource and conflict-affected settings. Using an innovative whole child development approach tailored to context-specific needs, we translate research into timely and thoughtful action, adapt research tools to improve the development of learning programs and policies, and activate systems (families, schools, communities) to lift children and adolescents out of adversity.
