As the percentage of college students with children and other nontraditional students increases, U-M staff and faculty will need to know how best to serve this diverse population. Workshop panelists will highlight the special challenges facing nontraditional students and inform attendees of the University policies, resources and community supports available to address them. Join us to learn how you can assist in retaining student parents at U-M and helping them thrive!

This panel is targeted specifically to U-M staff, however students are welcome.

Co-sponsored by Work-Life Resource Center and the Rackham Graduate School.
