  2. foster mentoring relationships between faculty members and graduate students who are pursuing doctoral-level research in the child care field;
  3. encourage active communication, networking, and collaboration among graduate students, their mentors, other senior child care researchers and policymakers; and
  4. encourage active communication, networking, and collaboration among graduate students, their mentors, and policymakers.
