Recording: Doing More for Parenting & Mental Health on Campus, Mar 8, 2022

As the movement to support student parents--a cross-section of many historically underserved student populations--gains traction with higher ed leadership and advocates, this talk will home in on the mental health of parents on campus more broadly, among both students AND professors. Hear from researchers about the latest data, student parents & professors giving voice to their experiences, and practitioners & advocates sharing best practices for helping those who are parenting thrive on campus.
