Family and Parent Resources
There are a number of family-friendly practices and resources in place for graduate students with families. The Graduate School has developed this guide to help orient student-parent; however, it is not exhaustive. Please remember that your graduate program will also have important policies and resources. Be sure to consult with your graduate coordinator, advisor, and assistantship supervisor, if you have questions about taking leave or other academic issues related to family responsibilities.
For current parents: insurance options, financial resources, childcare information and resources, family-friendly campus housing options, and more.
For new and expecting parents: academic policies and options, leave of absence recommendations, campus resources for new parents, lactation rooms, and more.
Community resources and programming for children: parent-child classes, summer programs, state and federal services, and more.
Free and low-cost activities for children on and around campus: listservs, libraries, gardens, museums, theaters, consignment clothing sales, and more.
