They discussed the needs and superpowers of parents who are pursuing their postsecondary education goals. Student parents represent 1 in 5 of the total undergraduate student population in the U.S. and are crucial in achieving economic security for families. Watch this episode to learn more about the experiences and challenges that these parents are faced with each day as they work to create a sustainable future for themselves and their families.
