Services for Students With Children

Services for Students with Children offers integrated services that support students’ goals to be effective parents while succeeding in their academic pursuits.

Through campus projects, community involvement, and advocacy, we strive to increase available resources and opportunities that improve the quality of life for students with children. The RCSC envisions a future in which students with children receive all the supports and services they need to complete their academic goals and provide a brighter future for themselves and their children.
