Tapping the Talent of Student Parents: A Playbook for Postsecondary Leaders
In 2020, Ascend established the Postsecondary Leadership Circle (Leadership Circle), a group of more than 20 college and university leaders who advise the Postsecondary Success for Parents (PSP) Initiative. Members of the Leadership Circle are spearheading innovative practices and family-friendly strategies on their campuses that advance postsecondary pathways for student parents across the country. This Playbook showcases Leadership Circle members’ successes and lessons learned in implementing their action plans to support student parents on campus in order to highlight potential paths forward for other institutions.
The right people.
The right time.
The right conversation.
