Two generations. One future.

Family Friendly Campus Toolkit

This 2Gen Toolbox is a growing collection of resources developed by Ascend Fellows and Ascend Network partners — pioneering two-generation leaders and organizations working to create opportunities for and meet the needs of children and the adults in their lives together.

With the generous permission of the Ascend Network and Fellows, we are making these models, case studies, tools, and other materials available. Our goal for the Toolbox is to facilitate learning, adoption, and scale of two-generation approaches.

Unless otherwise noted, these materials were not authored by Ascend at the Aspen Institute. Ascend reviews the materials for relevance before posting; however, inclusion in the Toolbox does not signify Ascend’s unqualified endorsement. See criteria for inclusion.

We welcome feedback on these tools. We will continue to add to these resources and hope you find them valuable.

Family Friendly Campus Toolkit

The Family Friendly Campus Toolkit from Endicott College is intended for those working in higher education who want to improve outcomes and conditions for parenting students. The Toolkit contains 3 sections: Getting Started, Collecting Data, and Making Sense & Moving Forward. It will guide you through a self-assessment process, helping you collect information about and from student parents on your campus and the resources currently available to them. It will help you set up a local Task Force, collect data, and create an Action Plan based on your particular goals, needs, and opportunities. June 2017.
