CEW+ Guide Helps Colleges Better Serve Students with Children

Did you know that 26% of all college students nationwide are raising children? U-M’s own survey data found a comparable percentage of student parents, mostly among our graduate and professional student populations. Under the Michigan Partners Project grant, CEW+ created the guide Helping Students with Children Graduate: Taking Your College Services to the Next Level to help Michigan colleges build and improve their support programs for student parents. The report outlines unique challenges faced by these students and links readers to model programs in the areas of academic & social support, child care, financial support, housing, and healthcare. It also identifies and links to sources of state, federal and non-profit assistance.
