LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The University of Nebraska-Lincoln has announced a new effort to boost research and support of early childhood development.

University officials announced the creation Thursday of the Nebraska Early Childhood Research Academy, which will promote research and collaboration on challenges that young children and families face.

The university is also adding nine new positions to the current 65 faculty members who work on early childhood issues. The university’s extension offices will hire 15 educators who will work with the early childhood community throughout the state.

Some of the work will take place in Brazil, China, Turkey and other international locations.

University of Nebraska-Lincoln Chancellor Harvey Perlman says providing children with the resources they need is crucial to the long-term state economy.
