Two Generations, One Dream: Student Parents, Higher Education, and Economic Opportunity

Monday, October 2, 2017

Mon, October 16, 2-4 pm, Coffman Theater

Please join the Student Parent HELP Center and the Office for Student Affairs for a panel discussion featuring state representatives Ilhan Omar and Rena Moran discussing the challenges and opportunities that students with children face when they are accessing higher education. In addition to the panel, there will be an inaugural awarding of the "Two Generations. One Future. Scholarship" to a deserving U of M student parent. This event is in honor of the Student Parent HELP Center's 50th anniversary. Beginning in 1967 as a program for underrepresented students at the University, the program has evolved into a model program supporting students with children.
