From access to child care to financial aid, a constellation of institutional, state, and federal policies impact the success of student parents as they progress through college and into the workforce. We invested in New America to identify and support a network of champions for student parents that are advancing policy change that can improve the lives and success of adult learners with children where they learn, work and live. Through this partnership, we aim to deepen our understanding of the existing gaps in the field and identify more opportunities for collaboration, so that together, we can remove barriers to student parent success wherever they exist.
New America is dedicated to renewing, reimagining, and realizing the Promise of America in an era of rapid technological and social change. Guiding our work is the vision of a country in which every individual has access to the education, workforce opportunities, wages, and agency they need to achieve their potential over the course of their lives.
