Giving to the Clinical Child Psychology Program

Thank you for visiting the KU CCPP Endowment Funds page.  Below, we have listed opportunities for you to partner with us to advance our mission of developing leaders in the research, dissemination, and practice of clinical science for children, adolescents, and families.  A gift to the program represents a gift to the development of interventions, prevention programs, and basic research to improve the lives of children, adolescents, and their families. 

Our endowment account has been growing thanks to the generous support of our alumni and friends, and children, youth, and families have been reaping the rewards.  A gift of any amount will help us with our mission, and will help us continue our tradition of excellence. 

Please remember that all donations are tax-deductible. All money donated goes to your stated purpose and does not mingle with or supplant state funds. Funds are administered jointly by the Program faculty and KU Endowment. We appreciate your support.

Michael C. Roberts Colloquium Series in Clinical Child Psychology Fund

The Michael C. Roberts Colloquium Series in Clinical Child Psychology Fund is an endowed fund that honors its name bearer’s contributions to the field as Founder and Director of the KU Clinical Child Psychology Program. We have all been touched by Michael's personal commitment to our professional development, as well as by his advocacy for graduate education at the national level.

Interest from the endowed account will bring eminent scholars in clinical child psychology to KU to deliver colloquia, meet with students, and consult with faculty on ongoing clinical research projects.

The colloquium series will raise the national profile of the CCPP, enhance graduate training, allow invaluable networking opportunities for students, and offer opportunities for collaboration for faculty working on projects of vital importance for children, youth, and families.

The fund was established in May of 2012 with initial gifts from Dr. Sarah T. Trane, the family of Dr. Michael C. Roberts, and the faculty of the KU Clinical Child Psychology Program.

Graduate Student Research

The Program helps students meet the ever-increasing costs of conducting empirical research. Money donated through KU Endowment can be used to recruit and reimburse research participants, greatly assisting the development of research. State funds or clinic income cannot be used for this purpose.

The funds are used to supplement Program support for students' major projects (thesis, task, and dissertation) as well as extra projects. For annual commitments of research support in excess of $500, named awards can be arranged in specific topic areas.

Graduate Student Travel Support

Students often need financial assistance to travel. The Graduate School only partially funds one convention/conference trip during a graduate student's tenure. We would like to provide additional support for our students to attend meetings for their professional development and to present their projects at conventions and conferences. CCPP students could also benefit from travel funds for data-gathering, often necessary for studying low incidence clinical samples and other special populations.

Lauded race and class historian becomes KU Foundation Professor David Roediger’s award-winning research and writing has already transformed how historians view the growth of social freedoms in America though the intersection of race, class, ethnicity, and labor. Now Roediger, as KU’s first Foundation Distinguished Professor of History (http://bit.ly/1AbAqYw), will continue to break new ground in those fields as he leads KU’s departments of American Studies and History. Roediger likes to study historical flash points — where one particular change brings a cascade of wider cultural changes. His latest book, “Seizing Freedom, Slave Emancipation and Liberty for All,” makes the point that as slaves began freeing themselves across the South during the Civil War, their emancipation inspired and ignited other cultural movements for freedom — such as the women’s movement for suffrage and the labor movement for better working conditions and an eight-hour day. Understanding the individual stories of average people who wanted to make their lives better, including slaves or factory workers, is important to understanding the wider political movements and elections, Roediger said. “It's tempting to think that all the important political questions have been decided,” he said, “but actually people are constantly thinking about what freedom would mean for them.”
