Wheelock College celebrated its 125th Anniversary in 2013. As part of the College’s yearlong celebration of this important milestone, Wheelock gathered 500 national and international educators, practitioners, researchers, philanthropists, students, and policy leaders to explore pressing issues affecting children, youth, and families in education, health, and human rights across the globe. Participants examined the interconnectedness of global challenges and opportunities for young people and families.

The conference from June 19-22, 2013 was the cornerstone event commemorating Wheelock’s 125th anniversary and built on Wheelock’s mission and commitment to improve the lives of children and families, while advancing the College’s strategic goal to promote responsible and effective child- and family-focused research, policy, and practice around the world.
