FPG is committed to addressing the critical issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion and the ways educational inequality, barriers to inclusion, and systemic racism impact the lives of children.
The Marvin H. McKinney Scholars Program in Research, Practice, and Policy at FPG honors FPG collaborator and Executive Leadership Board emeritus member Marvin H. McKinney, PhD, who has spent his career committed to breaking down barriers of racial and economic inequality that put children at risk. The goal of this summer internship program is to create and support a pipeline for individuals who attend historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and are interested in pursuing careers in child development.

RACE Committee Publications
Prior to the creation of the EDI Office, FPG's award-winning RACE Committee elevated awareness, promoted dialogue, and facilitated a positive work climate, while fostering the development of culturally attuned and culturally relevant work. The committee also conducted a public awareness campaign about racial equity that incorporated these resources:
UNC Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute (FPG), North Carolina Central University (NCCU), North Carolina A&T State University, and Bennett College have created a collaborative partnership aimed at conducting research and implementing programming focused on improving health, educational, and equitable outcomes for Black children and their families. We have co-created a framework for sharing resources and connecting HBCU faculty and students with collaborators and mentors across disciplines and across North Carolina’s HBCUs and UNC FPG.
