About the Student Parent Initiative

The student parent initiative has been created to ensure the success of students that are parents. The group is here to help student parents form a network with other students that are parents and have similar experiences. To achieve this, the Office of Retention Management and Planning organizes luncheons and socials for student parents to have an opportunity to get to know each other.

Workshops

Members of the Student Parent group also get notifications about relevant workshops going on around campus. Brilliant Bobcat workshops such as 'Nutrition 101', 'How to Live on a College Budget', and 'Where Does the Time Go?' are examples of workshops that have proven to be useful to Student Parents.

Mentoring

Program leaders in the Office of Retention Management and Planning have teamed up to create a unique mentoring opportunity for Student Parents. The Bobcat Bond program has added optional criteria to the mentor/ mentee application pertaining to being a parent so that Student Parents can find mentors that are able to relate to them on a yet another level.

Resource Connection

Resource Connection is a list of local resources that can be useful to Student Parents. If students are having trouble getting connected with any of these resources they are always welcome to contact us for help.
