Parent Pathways Learning Network: POLICY REPORT

Posted by PA Department of Human Services on August 22, 2023

The Pennsylvania Parent Pathways Learning Network (PPLN) policy report is the culmination of more than a year’s work of parenting students, postsecondary institution staff, subject matter experts, multiple state agencies, and community leaders.


In 2022, through a grant from Ascend at the Aspen Institute, the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (DHS) signed an agreement with The Hope Center for College, Community, and Justice at Temple University (“The Hope Center ”) to develop a Parent Pathways Learning Network (PPLN).

Along with the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE), DHS, and The Hope Center developed a program where six member colleges and universities have, through learning events, coaching and collaboration, developed parenting student implementation plans to present to their respective schools’ leadership.
