Student Voices Matter: A Roundtable Discussion With Pregnant and Parenting Students

Nearly 4 million student parents across the country courageously work to attain their postsecondary degrees; in fact, 20% of all undergraduate students in California are parents.

Often overlooked, pregnant and parenting students must overcome time poverty; a lack of affordable childcare and family-friendly housing’ limited course availability; and many other challenges, including feeling isolated, disconnected, and unwelcome by their college campuses–all while providing for their families and completing their studies.

In spite of these obstacles, student parents consistently achieve higher grade point averages than non-parenting students. Join the Michelson 20MM Foundation for a student-centered discussion that aims to uplift the unique experiences and challenges faced by student parents.
