Creating Opportunities for Student Parents to Thrive in College

Thursday, April 20, 2023
3-4 pm/ET on Zoom
(2-3 pm/CT | 1-2 pm/MT | 12-1 pm/PT)


Where: Zoom (we'll follow up with a calendar invite and Zoom link)

Cost: Free

Discussion Topic:

Did you know that 1 in 5 undergraduate college students today is a parent, and yet they're 10 times less likely to graduate? Fewer than 2% of teen mothers who have a baby before age 18 earn a college degree before age 30. You can help change these statistics by joining this CEO-only discussion facilitated by two highly accomplished leaders who began their journeys as student parents and have firsthand knowledge of the struggles this vulnerable population faces.
