National Adoption Month

paint-handsNovember is National Adoption Month.  This year, organizations and state governments are focusing on the adoption of children currently in foster care.

From the perspective of an NSF ADVANCE Program, we are interested in university policy and resources for faculty.  As part of their family-friendly policies and work-life support, universities offer financial assistance, webpages or pamphlets with information and links to outside organizations, and peer-mentoring groups on campus.  We collected information that the Ivy Plus institutions provide their faculty, so faculty can get an idea of what to expect and administrators can better understand what peer institutions are doing:  information and links are on our Dependent Care wiki.
