Chicago early childhood research consortium: Exploratory report


This report presents the findings of the initial phase of exploration regarding the creation of a Chicago early childhood research consortium. Between October 2020 and January 2021, we conducted stakeholder interviews with 26 participants from 16 different organizations. Interviewees included researchers, advocates, practitioners, leaders of community-based organizations, Chicago City officials and staff, and other experts selected based on their current work, relationships, and areas of expertise. Each interview focused on: Gaps in the current landscape: Do we need a new consortium? What should be the role and functions of a consortium? How should a consortium be structured and where should it be housed? Anticipated barriers or challenges in creating a consortium? Other advice, suggestions, and recommendations? (author abstract)
