Exchange magazine, which promotes itself as “The Early Childhood Leaders’ Magazine,” since 2014 has been identifying and inviting early childhood leaders to join the Exchange Leadership Initiative. Those who accept the invitation apply and share with Exchange their vision, how they lead, and their determination.

Unal was nominated by colleagues who recognized her outstanding efforts to support children, families and early childhood teachers on campus and in the greater Madison community.

In her Exchange Leader profile statement, Unal highlights her commitment to children, their teachers, and student parents. Building a strong foundation for children and their parents begins with access to quality child care where children can thrive parents can pursue degree completion. A multi-generational approach to family wellbeing yields the brightest outcomes for children and their parents.

The Office of Child Care and Family Resources (OCCFR) promotes the academic and professional goals of UW–Madison through the administration of early education and family support programs. OCCFR is housed within the School of Education.
