Michelson 20MM: Lessons Learned From Implementing AB 2881

21 Mar
Event Details:

Join Michelson 20MM on March 21, 2024, as they consider lessons learned and highlight bright spots on the rollout of AB 2881.

The passage of AB 2881, authored by Assembly Member Marc Berman and co-sponsored by the Michelson Center for Public Policy, represents major progress toward serving over 480,000 student parents across California’s higher education systems. As a result of the bill, student parents can:

  • Easily view services available to them via the newly required student parent webpage, which is clearly visible and easily accessible from the homepage of their campus website.
  • Learn more about the California Special Supplemental Food Program for Women, Infants, and Children through campus orientations, student portals, and basic needs centers.
  • Participate in priority registration if they have a dependent minor living with them.

Given that student parents are more likely to experience “time poverty,” a larger debt load, and employment demands, AB 2881 promises to be an important hand up for this often forgotten student population.

How is implementation of this consequential policy going across California? How have decisions been made on what priority registration looks like? Has AB 2881 sparked a movement toward improved data collection on student parents across the states’s higher education systems?
