No Matter What Obstacle is Thrown My Way

Although similar in many ways to other nontraditional students, single mothers bring a unique set of strengths as college students, as well as additional barriers to program completion. Yet, until recently, their particular experiences and  challenges as a distinct student population have not gained the attention or resources required to address their needs effectively. To remedy this, a growing movement has emerged to give voice to student parents and to better understand and address their needs.

Single mother students have a great deal to offer the colleges that invest in them. This investment is especially worthwhile at a time when enrollments are declining, and colleges and states are striving to create equitable and inclusive educational opportunities for residents as well as meet ambitious college completion and workforce and economic development goals.
