Student Opportunities

One of our goals is to teach and mentor students.

We support many student assistantships and research experiences each year from a variety of departments and disciplines both at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the University of Nebraska-Omaha. These students will be able to have hands-on experience working in a policy-relevant center where they can put their research skills to use on real-world problems.

Helping students help their future:

  • Students assist in research activities at CCFL.
  • Students assist with service activities at CCFL.
  • Students work with the faculty and project directors to present at conferences or publish their research.

Our Alumni Stories

What I loved about CCFL was collaborating with a wide range of professional disciplines to do work that really mattered: synthesizing evidence on adolescent pregnancy prevention programs, role-playing to assist in the evaluation of the new Child Advocacy Center, translating research for non-scientific audiences, and writing about the implications of welfare reform on children. I will always be grateful for my CCFL experiences, that prepared me so well for the work I do today.
