Podcast: 1 in 5, Experiences of Students Who Are Parents

Posted by Aspen Institute on June 22, 2021

Ascend at the Aspen Institute has launched 1 in 5, a new podcast focusing on the experiences of students who are parents pursuing postsecondary credentials. According to the National Postsecondary Student Aid Study, more than one in five college students (22 percent) are parents. Each episode features in-depth conversations with student parents and those who advocate for them in the fields of education, philanthropy, non-profit, and research, among others – including Ascend’s PSP Parent Advisors who inform our Postsecondary Success for Parents (PSP) Initiative.

1 in 5 podcasts give in-depth profiles of outstanding individuals among the 22% of college students who are also parents. Created by Ascend at Aspen Institute, this narrative documentary collection celebrates the scores of students who are pursuing their educations while raising children, working, and also leading in their families and communities.
