CYAF profiles faculty research and work with students in series of videos

The Department of Children, Youth and Family Studies has produced a series of videos profiling CYAF faculty. According to Chair Rich Bischoff, the project was a recruiting strategy and a way to make the department's great work more visible. "I'm convinced that most of the best prepared doctoral students choose their doctoral programs because there is someone that they want to work with or study under," Bischoff said. The intent of the videos is to inspire students and steer them to UNL to study with specific faculty members.
