Webinar: One in Five – The Student Parent Experience and its Impact on College Success – June 11

Posted by Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) on June 9, 2020

One in five college students today is a parent, and yet they remain a largely invisible population. The vast majority of institutions do not track parenting status and therefore do not know how many student parents they have at any given time. Postsecondary success for these students is critical and far-reaching: when a student parent earns their degree, it has ripple effects that span two generations, impacting the parent’s employment opportunities and lifetime earnings potential, along with their child’s chances for achieving academic and career success.

During this webinar, Nicole Lynn Lewis of Generation Hope, a nonprofit focused on college completion and early childhood success for teen parents in the Washington, DC-area, will share new data from their recently-published report on the higher ed experiences of student parents, along with recommendations for institutions and policymakers to boost outcomes for the population derived from their ten years of direct service work with young families.
