PBS NewsHour features Family Resource Center

There are nearly 4 million undergraduate students who are raising children, representing 22 percent of all students attending U.S. colleges.

The Family Resource Center reduces barriers to higher education and jobs through a whole-family approach. Collaboration with on-campus support programs and community agencies all work together to advance positive social, economic, and educational outcomes for our students and their families. We know there are greater opportunities for success when the family unit is strong.
