2023 International Early Childhood Inclusion Institute
Committing to Communities Where Everyone Belongs
May 16-18, 2023
For more than 22 years, the UNC Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute's International Early Childhood Inclusion Institute has drawn people from across the nation and around the world to Chapel Hill to:
- learn about the latest research findings, models, and resources to guide inclusive policy, professional development and practice;
- develop collaborative relationships and cross-agency systems to support early childhood inclusion; and
- provide attendees the opportunity to meet, learn from, and problem solve with their peers.
This year, we are looking forward to our second hybrid International Early Childhood Inclusion Institute, and we are thrilled to be welcoming participants virtually and in-person. We are working hard to plan an event that shines a light on topics that matter the most to you in serving children with disabilities in our world right now. We hope that the Inclusion Institute will leave you feeling informed, energized, and supported.
We are also offering pre-conference workshops on May 16 from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. at the Friday Center, not included in the waived fee. If you are interested in registering for a pre-conference workshop, complete your registration for in-person only, then return to the registration site (https://tinyurl.com/2alh85y8) and complete a separate registration for the pre-conference workshop so that payment can be processed. If you would like to attend a pre-conference workshop, please select only one as they run concurrently.
* If you are an Inclusion Institute presenter, vendor, volunteer, or have an ECTA-sponsored scholarship, please look out for an email with your unique registration link or contact Barbara Lowery (firstname.lastname@example.org
While at the Friday Center, we will be abiding by all current Orange County, UNC-Chapel Hill, and Friday Center guidelines regarding health and safety. Current information can be found here:
