Webinar: TO AND THROUGH HIGHER EDUCATION: Innovative Approaches to Meeting the Needs of Students in Foster Care – May 4
Posted by The Field Center on March 28, 2023
This FREE webinar is offered through the Field Center, the University of Pennsylvania School of Social Policy & Practice, and Penn Online Learning.
With resources and support, students with experience in foster care are more likely to access and succeed in higher education. New research in Pennsylvania highlights common barriers and challenges experienced by students and campuses alike in getting young people to and through college. Longstanding problems require innovative solutions. In this webinar, Dr. Donald Miles will share findings from his dissertation “A Study of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education Schools’ Support Systems for Emancipated Youth Who Desire to Obtain a Bachelor’s degree”. Following, you will hear from passionate professionals who are rejecting “business-as-usual” approaches and getting creative in ensuring that youth in foster care can reach their higher education goals.
