Through our work as task force members, we aim to identify resources for student-parents; bridge the gap between students and faculty and facilitate an ongoing dialogue; develop student-faculty policies, guidelines, and protocols for the classroom and in higher education more broadly; cultivate an open-mindedness among faculty toward the needs of student-parents; and promote engagement with key stakeholders involved in promoting the success of student-parents.

All task force members complete original research and advocacy projects focused on promoting the success of student-parents. Our overarching goal is to identify strategies for harnessing the unique value that students-parents’ diverse experiences bring to higher education.
