Student Parents in the South


The purpose of the Student Parents in the South project is to identify programs that serve students with children, and contribute to a national database of such programs. This research covers the colleges and universities in the Southern Association of Schools and Colleges (SASC), beginning in Texas and Florida and expanding to other southern states.

The Texas dataset seeks to identify best-practices programs beginning by creating a dataset reflecting existing on-campus student parent support services and programming including: student parent resource centers; wraparound programs; specialized program tracks or courses; family housing; on-campus childcare; student parent specific scholarships or subsidies; student parent social groups or clubs; student parent specific supports offered through work/life centers and/or women’s centers; or other programs targeting student parents. This project will contribute to a third comprehensive regional dataset of college & university student parent programs.
