Welcome to the ERI Committee’s site! We will serve as a resource for initiatives that advance our understanding of race, ethnicity and inclusion at SRCD and beyond. We also plan to connect our members, showcase their work and extend their capacity to conduct research and/or serve diverse populations.

Mission Statement

The Ethnic and Racial Issues Committee (ERI) is responsible for the development and oversight of activities pertaining to the participation of minority scholars in the Society for Research in Child Development and for promoting developmental research on ethnic minority children and adolescents. In order to carry out this responsibility the committee’s activities are focused on the following three areas.

  1. The development of an academic pipeline with the purpose of increasing the number of ethnic minority scholars conducting research in the field of child development (broadly defined). As part of this charge, the committee oversees the Frances Degen Horowitz Millennium Scholars Program (FDHMSP), assists with reviewing FDHMSP applications, and encourages ERI members to participate in FDHMSP activities.
  2. To examine the current state of research in the field and to promote opportunities that result in increased levels of research focused on the development of ethnic minority children and adolescents. To provide guidance and recommendations to the Society concerning the inclusion of such research through the Society’s publications, biennial meetings, and other external outlets.
  3. To serve as a liaison to other groups and organizations concerned with research on ethnic minority children and adolescents i.e., the Asian Caucus, the Black Caucus, the Latino Caucus and the International Committee).
